Who is the best Premier League goalkeeper ever? You decide...

Following the news that Petr Cech will retire at the end of the season, we are asking you to pick the best goalkeeper from the Premier League era. 

Our 12-strong shortlist includes players who were first choice keepers for title-winning teams since 1992. Included are two former Chelsea players: Cech, a Premier League winner on four occasions and the man with the most clean sheets in a single campaign (24), and Thibaut Courtois, who won the league twice during his time at Stamford Bridge. 

Two decorated Manchester United goalies are on there: Peter Schmeichel, a five-time Premier League winner in the 1990s, and Edwin van der Sar, who won it four times and holds the record for the longest period without conceding a goal, 1311 minutes. Current Old Trafford stopper David de Gea is also there, as is Fabien Barthez. 

Peter's son Kasper Schmeichel was a suprise winner with Leicester in 2016, and Tim Flowers, Jens Lehmann and Ederson are other keepers with a solitary success to their name. Former England internationals Joe Hart and David Seaman complete the list having enjoyed success with Man City and Arsenal respectively. 

We want to know who you think has been the very best of the bunch over the past 26-and-a-half years so all you have to do is weigh up the dozen options below and pick one. Remember, the first click is the one that counts!
