Top 5 Liverpool Goalkeepers With Most Clean Sheets
5. Pepe Reina – Liverpool Goalkeepers With Most Clean Sheets
Pepe Reina manned the Liverpool backline for 9 years (2005-2014) and he is now in the all-time list of Premier League goalkeepers with more than 100 cleansheets. The Spaniard is now 37 and is the custodian of Serie A side, AC Milan.
During his time with the Reds, he featured plenty of times for the Spain national time and has so far, recorded 37 caps. He was one of the first goalkeepers known in the English top-flight because of his technical ability with his feet.
With Reina at the back, Liverpool could formulate their attacks from their own box – the type of football that all good teams are adapting into their side these days. Reina won the Premier League Golden Glove award for the most clean sheets in his first three seasons at Anfield. That is a huge feat to accomplish and will be even harder for Liverpool’s current shot-stopper, Alisson Becker.

It took Tommy Lawrence 5 years before breaking into the first team and he never gave a chance for anyone to look back. He won the League twice and a FA Cup with Liverpool.

Elisha Scott holds the record for the longest-serving Liverpool players at 21 years 52 days (1913-1934). Now, he holds this clean sheet record even though he missed 4 years because of the First World War.
