Petr Cech has a serious rival for the goalkeeping jersey at Chelsea this season in the form of Thibaut Courtois, so now is not the time to be underplaying his record. 

Sky Sports News reported his number of clean sheets in the Premier League compared to other keepers, and Cech spotted something wasn't quite right:  

For those who tweeted and retweeted ... It is wrong .... I have already passed the 150 clean sheets mark... ;-) pic.twitter.com/bjnq8c3C6E

According to the Metro, Cech in fact has kept 161 Premier League clean sheets.
