Cech Breaks Premier League Clean Sheet Record

Arsenal Goalkeeper, Petr Cech, on Monday night set a new Premier League clean sheets record with his shutout in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth.

The goalkeeper has now kept 170 clean sheets in 352 Premier League appearances, putting him clear of second-placed David James (169 clean sheets) and Mark Schwarzer in third (152).

Cech joined the Gunners in a £10m deal last summer and his eighth clean sheet for the club helped them return to the top of the Premier League.

Cech had previously kept the opposition at bay on a remarkable 162 occasions during his 11 years with Chelsea.

As well as Cech and Schwarzer – Leicester City’s reserve goalkeeper – Everton’s Tim Howard is the only other current player in the top 10 Premier League clean sheets list.
