Sutton rates Southampton keeper Forster ahead of Man City's Hart

Former Celtic and Chelsea striker Chris Sutton rates Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster England's best.

Sutton believes Forster can usurp Manchester City keeper Joe Hart as England's No1.

He told talkSPORT: "Fraser Forster was unlucky not to play at the World Cup.

"I think the fact he played he played at Celtic last season went against him, but he's down at Southampton now and he's showing what a good keeper he is.

"He may not be Edwin van der Sar with the ball at his feet, but he's solid, reliable, has a big presence in the box and deserves his chance for England.

"I think at the moment, pound-for-pound, he is the best goalkeeper in the country."
