How Many Clean Sheets Does Petr Čech Have?

Aheadof this afternoon’s North London derby at the Emirates, Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Čech can tie the all-time Premier League record for most clean sheets.

The record is currently held by David James on 169, with Čech one behind after keeping six clean sheets in his opening 11 games for the Gunners.

There has been much debate over how many the Czech Republic goalkeeper has kept, but the 33-year-old even confirmed himself on Twitter in September that the rules state a full 90 minutes must be played to be declared a clean sheet for a goalkeeper (that explains why Simon Mignolet only tied Joe Hart last season as the Liverpool goalkeeper replaced Brad Jones early in a game last season).

Here are those 168 Premier League clean sheets Petr Čech has kept in his career to-dateL
