HANS ON THE NO 1S

Hans Segers is looking forward to the meeting of two keepers he places in the Premiership's top three - Chelsea's Petr Cech and, of course, Paul Robinson.

The pair will be at opposite ends as we travel to Stamford Bridge for a hugely-anticipated Premiership clash on Saturday, kick-off 12.45pm.

Cech is widely regarded as the number one in the Premiership and voted as such by his peers in the PFA team of the season last term.

However, anyone with a Spurs allegiance would argue otherwise and coach Hans isn’t about to disagree.

"It's a very close call between them at the moment," said Hans. "Petr Cech is a few years younger although he has a bit more experience of international football.

"I would say they are two goalkeepers at the top of their game and both in the top three of the Premiership.

"I’m looking forward to seeing them both in action on Saturday."

Hans has been delighted with Robbo’s continued progression and reveals a desire to succeed second to none.

"We keep working on certain areas of his game where I think he can improve and he’s a lad who wants to be the best, he wants to be the best goalkeeper in the World Cup and that has to come at a price – his price is hard work day in, day out.

"He’s doing just that and for me, as a goalkeeping coach, it’s perfect. I’m coaching someone who is hungry, wants to be the best and wants to improve all the time and that’s a great thing to have."
