After moving to Chelsea in the summer of 2004, Cech would go on to enjoy 11 trophy-laden seasons at Stamford Bridge and become one of the Premier League's greatest goalkeepers. He was instrumental in helping the Blues to successive Premier League titles in 2004/05 and 2005/06, before lifting two more in his remaining time with the club.

The Czech kept 24 clean sheets in his debut season, winning the first of his three Golden Glove awards for the Blues. Cech signed off at Chelsea with the 2014/15 title before moving to Arsenal, where he earned a fourth Golden Glove in 2015/16. He finished his career with a competition-record 202 clean sheets.

When Chelsea handed over seven million pounds for a goalkeeper who had played just over 50 games in Ligue 1 for Rennes, a few eyebrows were raised. Especially as Manchester United had paid just £800,000 more four years previously to secure the services of World Cup and European Championship winner Fabien Barthez. But while the Frenchman would only keep 30 clean sheets for the Red Devils, Petr Čech would go on to set the record for the most in Premier League history.
Did you know?

Cech's 24 clean sheets in 35 Premier League matches in 2004/05 is still a record for a goalkeeper in a single season in the competition. Cech conceded a Premier League goal on average once every 108 minutes, the best ratio of any goalkeeper to play 200+ times in the competition.
