Arsene Wenger has hailed Petr Cech as "one of the greatest" goalkeepers to have ever played in England.
The Czech Republic international has been in fine form this season and is one away from equaling David James’ Premier League record of 169 clean sheets.
Wenger is confident Cech will continue to play at the highest level for years to come, due to his commitment to his craft.
“I believe that there is no coincidence,” the manager said. “What is repeated is not coincidence, it is just class. As well, not only class but dedication and consistency of quality.
“Knowing him well now after a few months, I’m not surprised by this kind of achievement because he is absolutely dedicated to his job, he analyses absolutely everything and is gifted as well.
“He is a super talent. He is certainly one of the greatest goalkeepers we have ever seen here in this country.
"He plays in a position where age is less of a restriction than in any other job. Until 37 or 38 I consider that a goalkeeper can be completely able to play at this level.”
