Stoke City goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen believes his form in the first half of the season makes him one of the Premier League's best.
The 33-year-old shot-stopper has been in fine form for the Potters so far with a string of impressive displays and crucial penalty saves for Tony Pulis' troops.
The former Aston Villa and Sunderland keeper analyses all of the other keepers from England's top flight and believes he is in the top 10.
Sorensen admits there are a number of shot-stoppers who have better attributes at some things than himself, like Manchester City star Shay Given, although he believes his anticipation is up there with the best.
"I can always look around and find a few keepers that are better than me on some things, but I think I am better at others," he told Ekstra Bladet.
"Someone like Shay Given is better on man-against-man while I can predict the game better.
"I definitely think that I am one of the best on the top half. Given the last season I am probably somewhere sixth or seventh at best."
