Arsenal and former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has revealed that his favourite save ever is that of his 2012 Champions League penalty save against Bayern Munich'sArjen Robben.

The veteran goalkeeper was this weekawarded withthe Guinness World Record for the most Premier League clean-sheets of any goalkeeper to grace the English top-flight, 181 from373 total starts in the Premier League.

It was while accepting this honour that he revealed in a interview withGuinness World Recordshis save thatthe 34-year-oldis "most proud" of.

The Czech Republic keeper said: "Obviously if you face a penalty in the Champions League final, in extra time, you know if you concede then it's all over"

Despite his popularity at Arsenal, the 6ft 5giant couldn't over look his glorydays with Chelsea when it came to picking his personal favourite save over his long career.

"You know your dream to win the Champions League is all gone, I have to take this penalty save.

"It's one of those saves you will always remember."

The shot-stopper has been around the block, having featured in the Premier League for twelve years, 11 of which were at Stamford Bridge with Chelsea before a move to North-London with Arsenal in the summer of 2015 for £10m.

However, the Czech Republic international admitted that he originally wasn't actually a goalkeeper and it was only when a first and second choice keepers failed to turn up for a match as a youngster that he stepped up to take the goalkeepers role, and the rest is history.
