Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech became the first player to reach 200 clean sheets in the EPL after he shut out Watford in the Gunners' 3-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The former Chelsea star was forced to work hard for his accomplishment as he was called upon to save a second-half penalty from Troy Deeney to help deny the Hornets a goal.

Former England goalkeeper David James, who retired in 2014, is second on the list with 169 clean sheets, while former Middlesbrough and Fulham star Mark Schwarzer is third with 151.

In fourth is Gunners legend David Seaman with 140, while former Leeds United, Everton and Crystal Palace star Nigel Martyn ended his career with 137 EPL clean sheets to his name.

Manchester City's Joe Hart, who is currently on loan at West Ham United, is the highest placed keeper, besides Cech, currently playing in England's top flight, and he is 11th with 122 clean sheets.

It would've made a good read had you even gone further to include the number of games them played while achieving those clean sheets.
