Cech, Barry bag Guinness World Records

Petr Cech

Premier League stars, Petr Cech and Gareth Barry, have both won places in the much-coveted Guinness World Records 2017.

First published in 1955, the iconic annual Guinness World Records books have sold over 136 million copies in over 20 languages.

Cech enters the record books for keeping the most clean sheets in Premier League history.

The Arsenal shot-stopper achieved 174 sheets in December last year to move clear of retired England goalkeeper, David James.

Barry on the hand has made the most starts in the history of the English topflight.

Since making his debut at 17-years-old at Aston Villa, the Everton midfielder has amassed 580 starts in the Premier League.

In a cruel twist of fate for James, this record was also his. James finished his Premier League career with 571 starts.

Barry recently became only the third player to reach 600 appearances in the Premier League, joining Ryan Giggs and Frank Lampard at the top of the all-time appearances list.
