In a keenly contested battle between Hugo Lloris, Thibaut Courtois, David De Gea and Petr Cech, Chelsea goalkeeper emerged victorious with 16 clean sheets.

The Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has been confirmed as the winner of the English Premier League Golden Glove award 2016/2017.

The Belgium international has kept 16 clean sheets in the top-flight as the Blues romped to the their second title in three seasons.

The Former Atletico Madrid shot-stopper, Thibaut Courtois beat off stiff competition from Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris, who finished with 15 clean sheets.

Manchester United’s David de Gea, Southampton’s Fraser Forster and Arsenal’s Petr Cech round out the top five.

Despite Antonio Conte’s side going on a run of 11 matches without a shutout during the second half of the campaign, Courtois’s superb form in the earlier part of the season has seen him secure the award.

He has also benefited from a setttled defence in front of him, with Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz and Gary Cahill all excelling under Conte’s tutelage.
