Has Petr Cech broken the Premier League record for most clean sheets or not? Well, this is what the man himself has to say.
“Good morning everybody, I took time to have a look into my number of clean sheets as there is so many different numbers regarding that,” the Czech Republic international posted on Twitter.
“You have to play full 90 minutes to count a Premier League clean sheet… that’s the rule, so only the games gk starts and finishes.
“I have 171 Premier league clean sheets in total but can’t count 4 because I didn’t play full 90 minutes … So the correct number is : 167!”
There it is then, still a little way to go, but should not be too long now.
