Top 10 Heaviest Players In The Game In England

#10. Thibaut Courtois – 91kg (200.6 lbs)


The Chelsea goalkeeper is just 23 years old but is already considered one of the best in the world in his position. Courtois is 6’6” and weighs in at 91kg. The Belgian keeper signed for Chelsea from Genk in 2011 but made his debut for the club over three years later. Instead, Courtois spent those three seasons on loan at Spanish side Atletico Madrid. The keeper impressed and was recalled by manager Jose Mourinho to become Chelsea’s number one. Courtois has been one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League in that past two seasons and his frame has really helped. In comparison to one of the other top young keepers in the Premier League, David de Gea, Courtois uses his extra weight to full effect when claiming crosses. They are roughly the same height but the Belgian weighs 20kg more which makes him much more effective aerially.
