VIDEO: PETR CECH CLAIMS 200 PREMIER LEAGUE CLEAN SHEETSDate: 2018-03-13
Petr Cech reached an exceptional English Premier League milestone this past weekend when he claimed his 200th clean sheet in the league.
Arsenal's 3-0 victory over Watford extended the record he set back in December, although eleven games and almost three months to achieve this record performance must have been excruciating.
It was a heroic performance for the goalkeeper who, in the 62nd minute, saved a penalty from Troy Deeney – which is also the first spot-kick since 2011 that Cech has saved, not to mention the first one for Arsenal. In his 332 appearances during his eleven years at Chelsea, the 35-year-old saved 162 spot-kicks, which is the reason he leads the standings by quite a large margin – former Liverpool and Manchester City goalkeeper David James in a distant second with 169 clean sheets.
