Top contenders for the 2017-18 Premier League Golden Glove award
Analysing the top contenders for this year's Golden Glove
We're into the business end of the Premier League schedule yet the title race is all but over as Manchester City have dominated the rest of the league. There are the individual awards to look forward to, however.
While all the attention might be on the Golden Boot chasers, the race for the Golden Glove -- an accolade given to the keeper who finishes with the most number of clean sheets -- is heating up!
We look at the four leading candidates who are in the running to claim the prize:
#4 Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea) - 13 clean sheets
The current holder, Courtois has enjoyed a good season despite Chelsea's disastrous title defence. Their defence hasn't been as solid as last season's and he has had to make crucial saves quite often to keep this season.
In 28 games, the Belgian has kept 13 clean sheets. He has conceded 26 goals this season and has made 56 saves.
Chelsea have crucial games left to play against Spurs and Liverpool at home this season and an away trip to Burnley. Apart from these three fixtures, you can expect him to keep a clean sheet in the remaining ones.
