Ian Wright has hailed Arsenal star Petr Cech as one of the best goalkeepers after the shot stopper set a new Premier League record on Monday night.

The 33-year-old has now kept 170 clean sheets in 352 Premier League appearances after Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Bournemouth at The Emirates.

The Gunners goalkeeper’s tally edged him ahead of former Manchester City and West Ham United goalkeeper David James, who racked up 169 clean sheets during his long career.

Former Arsenal striker Wright, who played with Gunners great David Seaman during his career, heaped praise on the summer signing following their 2-0 win.

Asked about Cech’s impressive record on Monday night, Wright told Match Of The Day: “One of the best, easily.”
