Let us be honest for a second. On the whole, goalkeepers are the ones selected last in the school playground. But occasionally one of this unique breed of footballer will rise up and claim records such as the most Premier League clean sheets.
Earlier this season David de Gea entered the top ten when it comes to the most Premier League clean sheets, so in this podcast we have decided to take a closer look at the top 10 in the history of the competition. We will see who holds the overall record as well as plenty of other insights into some of our favourite shotstoppers.
