Appearing on Belgian television show La Tribune on Monday evening, Courtois took part in a quick-fire quiz where he was given a list of goalkeepers and was asked to pick the quality each were better at than him.

On Dea Gea, Courtois replied: ‘He has very good reflexes. On his line, he is one of the best. But I am also.’

On Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet, Courtois said: ‘One on one.’

And when asked about Petr Cech, the Chelsea No.1 replied: ‘I have a lot of respect for him. He’s the best guy I’ve met in football at all levels.

‘Upon my arrival in Chelsea, he always helped and advised.’
