Petr Cech wins Golden Glove award after David de Gea concedes in final minute

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has won the 2015-16 Premier League Golden Glove award after recording the most clean sheets in the league with 16. Man United goalkeeper David de Gea, who had 15 clean sheets of his own heading into the final match against Bournemouth, failed to earn a share of the title by conceding a goal in the final seconds of the match, allowing Cech to earn sole possession of the award.

The mark ties Cech with Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart for the most Golden Gloves since the award was introduced in 2005. In winning he also becomes the first player to win the award with multiple teams after winning it three times for Chelsea in 2005 (21), 2010 (17) and 2014 (16).

Earlier this season Cech set the Premier League record for clean sheets, passing David James in a full 200 fewer matches.

Cech also has the highest percentage of clean sheets (48%) among all players with at least 100 in the Premier League.
