Premiership Update : Peter Cech Voted Best Barclays Premier League Goalkeeper
Chelsea's superstar goalkeeper, Petr Cech has reached 150 League clean sheets after Chelsea's 2-0 win at Hull City last weekend, Cech has been voted Best Barclays Premiership goalkeeper with former Manchester United goalies Peter Schmeichel and Edwin van der Sar in second and third. David Seaman finished fourth and David James fifth.
David James, the former England goalkeeper, played for five different teams in the Barclays Premier League during his long career and still holds the record for the number of clean sheets, with 169. However Petr Cech, who joined Chelsea in 2004, has reached the 150 mark a lot sooner, having competed in far fewer matches in his career to date. His Stamford Bridge team-mate Mark Schwarzer is only two behind and former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman close behind him.
Cech has the highest save percentage in history of the Barclays Premier League, leading Tottenham Hostpur goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes and Manchester City's Joe Hart.
Legendary Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel, was the first player to reach 100 clean sheets in the Barclays Premier League and ended his career with 129. Man United's Edwin van der Sar, holds the record for the longest run of consecutive clean sheets going 14 matches without conceding a goal for United in 2008/09, breaking Cech's record of 10 consecutive clean sheets during his debut season in 2004/05.
Going into the weekend, Arsenal remain on top of the Premier League Table with Manchester City and Chelsea close behind.
