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.
