This weekend is bringing together two of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League for a second-leg clash at Etihad Stadium. Liverpool is set to face Manchester City for a game awaited by many as they believe the winner will be considered the possible title winner. The heavy task lies on the goalkeepers who are in a stiff clean sheet competition for this season's golden glove.
Hugo Lloris and Ederson have both kept 17 clean sheets so far this season. This Sunday's match is one of the remaining 8 that the two should keep all-through clean sheets that will help in beating a record kept 17 seasons ago.
Former Chelsea and Arsenal goalkeeper left a record that stands to date since the 2004/05 season. Petr Cech is an iconic goalkeeper who managed to keep 24 clean sheets in the season. In that season, he only lost one match helping Chelsea win the Premier League title the same year he was signed by Rennes.
Although both have the chance to break Cech's record, only one of them will achieve the goal and with only one extra clean sheet. A new record holder can only stand at 25 clean sheets. All eyes will be on the two goalkeepers who might repeat Cech's trick of using clean sheets to award his team the Premier League Title.
