You wouldn’t think the words ‘clean‘, ‘sheet‘ and ‘Almunia‘, go together in the same sentence but apparently the goalkeeper kept the 10th highest amount of clean sheets for the club.
Manuel Almunia played 170 games for Arsenal and 70 of them ended with a clean sheet, which may come as a bit of a shock considering a lot of peoples’ prominent memories of the Spaniard probably involve him sprinting off up the pitch somewhere away from the goal.
The 28-year-old originally joined us in 2004 and left in 2012, which was a decent slog with all things considered. He moved on to Watford, where he became number one goalkeeper for a time and has so far played in 81 matches, keeping 22 clean sheets in total.
Wojciech Szczesny rather impressively makes number nine in the list with 79 clean sheets.
Number one in the list is David Seaman, who kept a staggering 237 clean sheets during his 13 years at the club, which means that over half the games he played for us ended without us conceding.
