The rivalry between Petr Cech and Thibaut Courtois for the goalkeeping duties at Chelsea this summer has been pretty much the only contentious point of an otherwise ideal transfer window for the Blues.

After Courtois got the nod for the opening game, Chelsea put the picture above on Instagram, which shows the competition extending into training.

If ever there was a picture worth 1,000 words, this might be it.

Update: Thanks to Jenny Brown for letting us know which one of the duo won the challenge:
