Petr Cech speaks for the first time since breaking the Premier League record 

Petr Cech has done nothing wrong since joining Arsenal earlier in the summer. He was tipped to be the differene maker in Arsene Wenger’s push to win that illusive title and he has doen just that. His saves have brough a huge difference to the way Arsenal have played this season and it is hardly a surprise to seem them at the top of Premier League table ahead of Leicester vs Manchester City tonight.

For those, who are not aware, cech broke a unique record last night when he surpassed David James’ record of 169 EPl clean sheets and now hold the record for the most number of clean sheets by a goal keeper with the illusive number 170 in his bag.

Since breaking the record, Cech has gone on to discuss the nervy last minutes during the game against Bournemouth where he was looking to break the record. Cech said: “I feel really proud because I believe that this is the best league in the world and one of the most difficult leagues to play for a goalkeeper so to have achieved such a record, obviously, it’s a great personal achievement,” Cech said afterwards. “So I’m really proud of that.

“But what makes me happy the most, probably, is that these clean sheets so far brought four Premier League trophies.”So hopefully we will add clean sheets this season and we will celebrate at the end of the season, because this is far more important.

“Against Bournemouth, the most important thing was to win the game and obviously once we got the 2-0 lead and it was going towards the end of the game, then, I have to confess that I started thinking about the record.

“In the last ten minutes, I was checking the clock, thinking, ‘Okay’. That was the moment when we were in the lead, we were in control, hopefully we can see this through – and we did a really good job.

“Although they had one chance at the end, we were in control, pretty much, the whole game and I thought that we had a really good game and it was a great response after the game we had at Southampton.”

Speaking on Arsenal’s chances of winning the league this season, Cech said: “I think that the great thing is that we go game by game.

“We don’t feel overwhelmed when we win. Obviously, you are disappointed when you lose a game like we did two days ago but the reaction and consistency of our work is very important and so far we’ve been doing that, preparing every game as well as we could. Now, we are in a really good position so hopefully we can carry on that.
