Where does Manchester United keeper David De Gea rank in the list of most Premier League clean sheets?
The Spaniard climbed the list on Tuesday night and could end the season even higher in the rankings.
The goalkeeper had to be on hand to make one excellent save to keep out Jakub Moder’s header in the first half, and it was another fine display from the Red Devils No.1.
That shut-out was his sixth of the season so far and means he has joined some esteemed company in the history of the Premier League. In fact, he’s now equal with fellow United great Peter Schmeichel on 128 clean sheets.
That puts him in the top 10, and he’s the only shot stopper currently playing to be on the list. De Gea is also just one clean sheet away from holding 10th spot out right.
A few more excellent displays this term could even see him climb some more places on the ladder, even as high as fifth if he has a stellar few months.
Nigel Martyn is currently fifth on 137, eight more than De Gea.
Could he even be aiming for top spot on that exclusive list within a few years? That is an accolade which is held by Petr Cech, who has 202 clean sheets
