Thibaut Courtois and David De Gea are unarguably the two best goalkeepers in the Premier League.

The two keepers who both had spells at Atletico Madrid were outstanding in goal this season and former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks has revealed why Courtois has had the better season.

The ex-Tottenham striker told the BBC: “There cannot be many Premier League goalkeepers who can claim to have had a better season than Manchester United’s David de Gea – but Thibaut Courtois can.

“The Chelsea player has won the title, and is another game from completing his first Premier League and FA Cup Double.

“There are not many players who can claim that either.

“What has impressed me the most about the 25-year-old’s season is that every save has been completed with the minimum of fuss.

“The Belgium international has produced some outstanding performances and his Golden Gloves award is a fitting tribute to a marvellous season.”
