Petr Cech trolls Alisson over Liverpool goalkeeper's clean sheet 'record'

He may be one of the Premier League newest stars, but one of the old stagers has made sure he remembers he’s still got some way to go to get near him!

Alisson’s 17th clean sheet of the season on Sunday for Liverpool at big rivals Everton had fans reaching for the record books.

But the man with the golden gloves is in no mood to let anyone forget he is the one leading the way when it comes to shut outs in their first year in England.

Petr Cech’s record of 24 with Chelsea in 2004-05 is still some way off being beaten.

Alisson is seven short, as the man himself reminded everyone on twitter.

He posted: “I know one guy who had 24CS in his debut EPL season”.

The Brazilian has some big names to get past if he wants to take the title come May.

Dutchman Edwin van der Sar kept 21 clean sheets in 2008-09, going ahead of Peter Schmeichel in the charts after his great 1994-95 campaign.

Liverpool’s Jose Reina also kept 20 clean sheets in two seasons.

Alisson has already broken one Liverpool record this season. He went unbeaten in his first 16 Premier League matches, surpassing the previous record held by Javier Mascherano whose run was ended in December 2007.

But he’s got some way to go to break the former Chelsea keeper’s record

The Brazil No.1 has proved to be a huge hit at Anfield since his £65million move from Roma.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp joked that he’s “worth double” and thinks his keeper has been outstanding since arriving from Italy.

“Alisson is unbelievably important,” Klopp said earlier this season.

“They all have their specific importance, for sure, but Ali is not only the goalkeeper. He is an outfield player as well and that helps of course.”

He looks for a sixth clean sheet in all competitions this Sunday when Liverpool host Burnley .
