He was part of the Chelsea 2004/05 squad that won the title under Jose Mourinho with a record breaking defence.

Cech played a huge role in the successes that year keeping 25 clean sheets and he conceded just 15 across the campaign – both records still stand today.

David James is 33 clean sheets behind Cech in second place.
