There are three goalkeepers that stand above the rest in the Premier League; David de Gea of Manchester United; Thibaut Courtois of Chelsea and Hugo Lloris of Tottenham. Choosing between Lloris and Cech is a fairly easy decision

Hugo Lloris joined Tottenham from Lyon in the summer of 2012 and has grown year on year to be one of the most consistent keepers in the league. This year has been stellar for the Frenchman. He leads the league with 14 clean sheets and Spurs have the best defensive record in the division.
He has been France’s ‘number one’ since 2009 and has 87 caps to his name. That is a huge number for a 30-year-old. The most exciting thing for Spurs and France is that goalkeepers usually reach their peak between 30-35. His best years are likely ahead of him
While Arsenal’s Petr Cech can’t quite keep pace with Lloris he is still a top class goalie. The Premiership stalwart has been in the league for 13 seasons; winning the title four times with Chelsea. He has provided Arsenal with a higher level of goalkeeping than they’ve had since the days of David Seaman. A position that was weak has now become stable and consistent and for that he deserves a ton of credit.
