Petr Cech: Beating David James’ Clean Sheet Record Will Mean Everyone Will Remember Me

Petr Cech: Beating David James’ Clean Sheet Record Will Mean Everyone Will Remember Me

In case you’ve somehow avoided it, Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is on course to surpass David James’ clean sheet record.

James managed to keep 169 Premier League clean sheets during his career as he turned out for Liverpool, Manchester City and Portsmouth.

But all Cech has to do stop either Manchester City, Southampton or Bournemouth in Arsenal’s festive fixture list and he will be recognised as one of the most consistent keepers in the league’s history before the turn of the year.

Cech has made 349 appearances in England since moving to Chelsea from Rennes in 2004, however after winning four Premier League titles and a Champions League, the 33-year-old moved to the Emirates in the summer in a £10 million deal.

And Cech has maintained his brilliant form since swapping blue for red, with Arsene Wenger’s side currently sitting in second place in the league table.

Cech gave a brief interview with Arsenal.com this week and the he admitted that being recognised for achievements is all any football player hopes to do in their career:

Earlier in the week, Cech posted this picture to Twitter, showing his wife’s effort at baking after he equalled James’ record against Aston Villa at the weekend.
