Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes that he is now among the top five goalkeepers in world football.

The 21-year-old, who is currently on loan at Atletico from Chelsea, is widely considered as one of the best young keepers in world football.

That is a view that the Belgian now shares following his impressive performances for club and country over the last two seasons.

"I am in my best-ever form and feel that I am among the top five goalkeepers in the world," he told reporters at a press conference.

Courtois joined Chelsea from Racing Genk in 2011.
