Thibaut Courtois v Manuel Neuer

Four very good goalkeepers fighting for two spots here - Diego Lopez has done well to hold off Iker Casillas for the number one jersey in La Liga (although the Spanish legend is preferred in European competition).

Petr Cech also deserves praise for his consistency but we've opted to put young pretender Thibaut Courtois and Bayern's Manuel Neuer forward as the two team's picks.

It's a tight one; Courtois' potential is astonishing given his age, while Neuer is already the complete package.

Winner:

We're giving this one to Neuer - Courtois will one day be the best in the world but for now it is the German who is king.
