Petr Cech reached a remarkable Premier League milestone against Watford, claiming his 200th clean sheet in the 3-0 victory.

The goalkeeper put in a heroic performance which earned him a Man Of The Match award, saving a 62nd minute penalty from Troy Deeney.

The penalty save was also his first since joining Arsenal.

Cech extends the record he set in December and has waited eleven games and almost three months to move onto the landmark 200th figure. His first clean sheet came over 13 years ago on his debut for Chelsea in a match against Manchester United in 2004.

Meanwhile, the 35-year-old leads the record books by some margin, with former Liverpool and Manchester City goalkeeper David James in second with 169 clean sheets.
