LONDON, December 29 – Petr Cech set a new Premier League clean sheets record with his shutout in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth.

The goalkeeper has now kept 170 clean sheets in 352 Premier League appearances, putting him clear of second-placed David James (169 clean sheets) and Mark Schwarzer in third (152).

Cech joined the Gunners in a £10m deal last summer and his eighth clean sheet for the club helped them return to the top of the Premier League.

Cech had previously kept the opposition at bay on a remarkable 162 occasions during his 11 years with Chelsea.

As well as Cech and Schwarzer – Leicester City’s reserve goalkeeper – Everton’s Tim Howard is the only other current player in the top 10 Premier League clean sheets list.

Cech said: “It’s a great personal achievement and I felt really proud at the end of the game because if you look at the names in the clean sheet numbers and you see all those fantastic goalkeepers who had been playing and are still playing in this league then obviously it is a great achievement to top the list.

“I’m very pleased after the game we had at Southampton that the clean sheet brought three points as well because we won 2-0.”

      There seems to be more than meets the eye on Baragoi. Area Mps have detailed info on the calendestine moves by few Kikuyu mafis including iteere himself. Take matters carefully as mafias can do anything to propel their objective forward. Iteere did not wash his hands when he was mentioned on the jicho pevu drug scandal. The same wicked inefficient bogus unresonable commisioner is among the central figures to be taken to the ICC. Secondly Uhuru Kenyatta should be arrested as him being loose is a security threat to the public. A plan seems eminet on how they want to falsify the forth coming election. This is the same blunder when Kibaki stole Raila’s victory and eventually resulting to blood shed. Kivuiti confessed that he did not know who won the 2007/8 elections. So kibaki got to power illigally. Now watch out for those surrounding him: Uhuru, Kabogo and other powerful bood hungry central idiots! Kabogo has not cleared his name on the univesity studnet murder. People, Kenyans watch out these Hitlers! In fact my believe is that Kenya will one day go for full scale war as a result of few kikuyu greedy mafias. They cannot fool around everybody all the time. Guys like professor Njuguna of CBK and Kimunya are example of characters who care less of other communities. Them is their own belly and kikuyus. But trust me there is gone be a way out! Unless Kikuyus stop their shrewdness and be fair in equality in resources, war and blood shed is eminet. With oil in Turkana , i believe these people should be allowed to steal it from poor common people. Uhuru is currently enjoying enormous power and believe his expenses at the ICC are being paid by Tax payers money! nowonder Ruto has become a spanner or tick depending on Uhuru because he is a beneficiary. Who can stop manipulation by the Kikuyus. Turkana, Samburu will not tolerate nonsense. Let Kikuyus use gevernment machineries at their own peril. idiots!

        God have mercy and save us from this idiot. I’m not a Kikuyu but how did Kikuyu, Kibaki, Raila CBK come into this!!!!!!!????. Surely our security is failing because this guy belongs to a maximum security prison fully castrated so that we never have similar offspring……let me recover from my shock… i will continue
