Premier League goalkeepers with most clean sheets

Martyn Nigel- 137 clean sheets

Nigel spent entirety of his life playing in England where he kept 137 clean sheets in 372 games, out of which 272 where for Crystal Palace, and then he later played for Leeds United and Everton. Nigel won a place in the PFA from 1997 to 1999 on trot. Nigel always remained on the fringes of the national team, but he was a regular figure for all the clubs he played in, and despite lanky, Nigel was decent on the air, and had a more than reliable grip.


David Seaman- 144 clean sheets

Sadly, Seaman will be remembered for that looping Ronaldinho freekick in 2002 World Cup, where the ball seemed to sail over him for eternity. Seaman was a highly rated goalkeeper, and many felt he would replicate the heroics of Peter Shilton at the highest level, but he did establish himself as one of World’s finest when he moved to Arsenal in 1990 and had a highly decorated career. In 13 seasons with Arsenal, he won the league title thrice, and was included in 1996/97 PFA team.

Seaman stood out due to his ponytail and his voracious leadership from the back. Seaman played 344 PL games, out of which 14 where for his last club Manchester City. He hung up his boots in 2004 but is revered as one of the greats in the English circuit.


Mark Schwarzer- 153 clean sheets

Australia’s finest and a legend at Middlesbrough, Mark Schwarzer played for Boros from 1997 to 2008, and bagged 445 games before moving to Chelsea where he added another 218 appearances before moving to Leicester in their title winning season but didn’t make any appearance. A cult legend in Australia, Schwarzer’s fitness has always been a big part of his game andplaying for the Blues regularly despite having Peter Cech is a testimony to it.


David James- 172 clean sheets

One of the revered goalkeepers of England, James faced many ups and downs, but in his peak his athletic figure and reach made him an invincible asset. He first made his PL appearance when he moved to Liverpool from Watford in 1992 and bagged 214 games in his 7 seasons there. He moved to Aston Villa but never really settled and left the club in 2001 for West Ham United. He played for Manchester City and Portsmouth before moving back to 2nd division and finally calling it a day in 2014.


Peter Cech-207 clean sheets

Arguably the greatest in this list, and most deserved of all. Peter Cech’s protective helmet became synonymous to his outstanding form for Chelsea. He started playing for Chelsea in 2004-05 and won golden glove in his debut season. After playing 333 games for them, he moved to bitter rivals Arsenal, although many Blues fan still consider him to be their greatest and most loved goalkeeper.

He played a further 99 games for the gunners, and till now he has bagged 207 clean sheets. He will retire at the end of the season, and he will leave behind fond memories and a legacy hard to topple.
