Petr Cech Wins Golden Glove Award

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech won the Premier League’s Golden Glove award after keeping 16 clean sheets this season.

Manchester United’s David De Gea had the chance to match Cech in his club’s rearranged fixture with Bournemouth on Tuesday but he conceded a late goal in the 3-1 win at Old Trafford.

That means De Gea ends the season with 15 clean sheets, along with Manchester City’s Joe Hart and Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel, and 33-year-old Cech clinched the prize for the fourth time in his career.

Czech Republic international Cech, who joined Arsenal last summer, won the award three times during his time at Chelsea — in 2005, 2010 and 2014, when he shared it with Arsenal’s Wojciech Szczesny.

The award was introduced in the 2004-05 season, when Cech kept 21 clean sheets, which has only been matched by Manchester United’s Edwin van der Sar since.
