Petr Cech

After moving to Chelsea in the summer of 2004, Cech would go on to enjoy 11 trophy-laden seasons at Stamford Bridge and become one of the Premier League's greatest goalkeepers.

He was instrumental in helping the Blues to successive Premier League titles in 2004/05 and 2005/06, before lifting two more in his remaining time with the club.

The Czech kept 24 clean sheets in his debut season, winning the first of his three Golden Glove awards for the Blues.

Cech signed off at Chelsea with the 2014/15 title before moving to Arsenal, where he earned a fourth Golden Glove in 2015/16. He finished his career with a competition-record 202 clean sheets.

What they said

“I remember in training we were doing a small-sided game and couldn’t start because Cech wanted the balls out of his net. I asked why. He said it was because he hated any football in his goal. This is a mentality that only the best have.” - John Terry

"I am honoured to have been the manager that, at such an early age, gave Petr a top Premier League No 1 shirt. After that day, it is all about him. All about his numbers, his performances, his clean sheets, his titles and his professionalism." - Jose Mourinho

Did you know?

Cech's 24 clean sheets in 35 Premier League matches in 2004/05 is still a record for a goalkeeper in a single season in the competition.

Cech conceded a Premier League goal on average once every 108 minutes, the best ratio of any goalkeeper to play 200+ times in the competition.
