We don't expect Reina to add many more clean sheets to his record at Aston Villa, but his brilliance with Liverpool, Villarreal, and Napoli has kept the Spaniard in fourth place. 3.0 Cech, Petr We all forget how fantastic Cech was when he was with Chelsea. The Czech keeper won two Champions Leagues with the club and was one goal away from winning a third before losing to Manchester United in the 2012 UEFA Champions League Final.
Now at Arsenal, Cech has been even better this season. The 38-year-old has made more than 100 appearances for Arsenal and has not missed a single game since March 2016 when he was out due to injury. He has also kept 13 clean sheets so far this season. With his experience and talent, there's no reason why Cech shouldn't continue playing for another few years.
Cech isn't the only great shot-stopper at Arsenal either. David O'Leary and Hans Meyer have their fans among those who remember the Gunners with pride after they were promoted from the English second division in 1990. However, neither of them has ever managed to beat out Cech or Wojciech.
Meyer played seven seasons for Arsenal and finished as the club's second most-capped player behind only Thierry Henry. He made 228 appearances for the Gunners across all competitions and scored six goals.
Petr Cech, our top goaltender on the list, by far owns the record for most clean sheets with almost 200. He won the Premier League four times with Chelsea, as well as four Golden Glove medals, one of which he received while at Arsenal. With Chelsea, the nine-time Czech player of the year won the Champions League. He is the first goalkeeper to win the award twice.
The next highest goal scorer on the list is Tim Krul with 52 goals to his name. The Dutchman has been a regular presence in the lineup for Newcastle United since 2011 and has played a major role in helping them stay afloat in the English football league system. He has also been named Player of the Year three times by his fellow professionals.

Krul has not only kept many of the shots he has faced out but has even managed to score some himself. His goal-scoring ability has helped him earn a place in the PFA Team of the Year each of the last three seasons. He also took home the Johnstone's Paintbrush Award given to the best goalkeeper in the Premier League in 2014-15.
Finally, there is Hugo Lloris who plays for Tottenham Hotspur and is considered one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
11:35 a.m. GMT+5:30 on May 7, 2021 The most clean sheets in Champions League history are held by Iker Casillas and Gianluigi Buffon | Chris Brunskill Ltd/Getty Images
The record for most clean sheets in the Champions League is held by Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon with 58 appearances to his name. He has the opportunity to break this record next season, as Italy's Gian Piero Ventura will be looking to lead his team into Euro 2020 qualifying matches without any injuries or suspensions occurring.
Iker Casillas is second on the list with 56 appearances to his name, having played throughout his career for both club and country. He remains one of the greatest keepers of all time after winning three Champions League titles with Madrid and one with national team Spain.
Cazorla makes the cut for two reasons. At the age of 35, the Spaniard is La Liga's highest-scoring midfielder. The former Arsenal man has been a magician in Villareal's side, bringing them to eighth position in the standings, just seven points away from a European spot after finishing 14th the previous season.
Insider has compiled a list of the top ten midfielders in the world right now. Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City is ranked first. Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba of Manchester United are also included. More stories may be found on Insider's homepage.
OSC Mike Maignan-Lille The French international goalkeeper ended the season with the most clean sheets, 21, to enable his team Lille OSC finish first in the standings. Mike was named Ligue 1's top goalkeeper after another strong season. He has been at the club since he was 16 years old and made his debut in the 2004/2005 season.
Benoit Carlus-Gironde The only newcomer to our list, Girondin Benoit Carlus has become one of the top goalkeepers in France this season. He has been praised for his performances in the Coupe de France and kept five clean sheets in six matches before being beaten by Guingamp in the quarterfinals.
Gregory Ibanez-Marseille The Ivory Coast national team goalkeeper started out as a striker but eventually became one of Marseille's top goalkeepers. He has appeared in 80 games over the last four seasons and kept 19 clean sheets.
Yoan Cardinale-Caen The young Caennaise keeper has quickly become one of the top goalkeepers in France this season after joining Caen from Sochaux in the summer. He has played in 29 games this season and keeps seven clean sheets.
Sepp Maier was one of the finest goalkeepers of his era, if not the best. From 1962 through 1979, he spent his whole professional club career with FC Bayern. He was a key member of FC Bayern's historic 1970s side, which won three consecutive European Cups from 1974 to 1976. During this time, he became the first goalkeeper to be awarded the UEFA Champions League Medal.
Maier is also regarded as one of the greatest players in Bayern Munich history, being named among the team's best five players by manager Sepp Herrmann. He earned over 100 caps for Germany and was part of their squad that finished fourth at the 1972 Olympics. After retiring from playing, Maier went on to manage several German clubs including Bayern Munich between 1991 and 1995 when he was fired after a string of poor results.
Currently, Manuel Neuer is the number one goalkeeper at FC Bayern Munich. He joined the club in 2006 and has since become one of the best in Europe. In 2009 he was voted the Bundesliga's Most Valuable Player after helping the club win its sixth championship in the last seven seasons. Neuer has been selected for Germany nine times and was part of their squad that finished third at the 2012 Olympics.
Other notable keepers who have played for Bayern Munich include Hans Tilzer, Thomas Linner, Harald Grosskopf, Peter Gulka, and Raimond Aumann.
