Cech the best goalkeeper in the world, according to Goal.com readers

The Chelsea shot-stopper edged out Iker Casillas and Manchester City No.1 Joe Hart, while Gianluigi Buffon and Manuel Neuer finished in fourth and fifth place respectively
Goal.com readers believe that Petr Cech is currently the best goalkeeper in the world, despite Joe Hart's recent heroics for Manchester City against Borussia Dortumund.

Hart pulled off a string of world class saves to help Roberto Mancini's side escape with a point from their Champions League Group D clash on Wednesday night, denying the likes of Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski as the game finished 1-1.

The 25-year-old only received 20.32 per cent of the votes in our poll, however, with Cech taking 34.26% to come out on top as readers' best No.1 in world football.

Cech, who saved three penalties in the 2011-12 Champions League final to ensure the Blues beat Bayern Munich, was again in top form in his side's group stage win over FC Nordsjaelland and has already kept six clean sheets for club and country in the current campaign.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas pipped the Czech international to finish in second place in our poll though, with 23.62% of the vote, while Italy captain Gianluigi Buffon received 9.67% to take fourth place.

Manuel Neuer, meanwhile, propped up the rear with the Bayern Munich goalkeeper ending up with 8.36% of the vote.
