Goalkeeper – Thibaut Courtois

Goalkeeper - Thibaut Courtois

This first selection may be controversial to some, but no one can doubt the immediate fates of Petr Cech and Thibaut Courtois will be at loggerheads this summer.

The Chelsea No.1 is still going strong, and can now claim to be by far the most experienced goalkeeper in the Premier League’s top four.

But Courtois has enjoyed three seasons of incredible success on loan to Atletico Madrid, claiming a Copa del Rey and Europa League title in the process, and has already been labelled as one of the best ‘keepers in the world at just 21 years of age.

Performances at the World Cup for the Belgium national team look set to further boost his stock world-wide.

Rather than selling on this coveted youngster, we at Football Fancast are tipping him to take the reins from Cech between the Blues’ sticks next season. What that means for the Czech international remains to be seen.
