Arsenal post a snap of Petr Cech's kit ahead of his bid to keep a record 170th Premier League
Arsenal took to Snapchat to wish Petr Cech good luck in his attempt to set a new Premier League record when the Gunners host Manchester City on Monday night.
The Czech Republic international kept his 169th clean sheet in the north London side’s 2-0 victory over Aston Villa at Villa Park last weekend.
The 33-year-old will break David James’s record if he can prevent the two-time Premier League champions from scoring at Emirates Stadium.
And Arsenal posted the above photo on their Snapchat of Cech’s kit neatly laid out ahead of the visit of Manuel Pellegrini’s side.
The north London side’s caption read: “Petr only needs one more clean sheet to break David James’s Premier League record.”
The Czech Republic shot stopper has played a key role in Arsenal’s impressive top-flight form, helping the Gunners to win 10 of their opening 16 Premier League games.
The experienced 33-year-old goalkeeper moved across London to Arsenal from defending Premier League champions Chelsea in an £11m deal in the summer transfer window.
