Former teammate Carlo Cudicini sends message to Arsenal's Petr Cech on Twitter

Former Chelsea teammate Carlo Cudicini congratulated Arsenal's Petr Cech on his latest achievement.

Petr Cech looked outstanding in goal once again as Arsenal blitzed a poor Aston Villa on Sunday.

In the victory at Villa Park he did not concede, and equalled the Premier League record for the number of clean sheets.

Cech equalled former England stopper David James on 169 - with the difference being the number of games played.

Now retired James took 572 appearances to reach 169 clean sheets, far more than Cech's 349. Importantly for the Arsenal man, it will not be long until the record is his outright.

Cech was congratulated on his achievement by the very man who lost his starting job to Cech at Chelsea back in 2005, Carlo Cudicini.


Arsenal may have only signed one player in the summer, but they really made it count, with Cech fixing a problem position for them - the only wish is that he was 10 years younger, although he could have around three or four seasons left in him.
