LFC Rewind: Pepe Reina sets Reds record 🧤⚽

On This Day (Dec 6) in 2010, goalkeeper Pepe Reina kept his 100th clean sheet in the league for Liverpool to beat a club record set by the great Ray Clemence.

Five-time league title winner Clemence took 217 games to reach the milestone, while Reina's shutout in a 3-0 Premier League win over Aston Villa saw the Spaniard do it in just 198 appearances.

Only four goalkeepers in the history of the club have kept 100 clean sheets in the league: Reina (198 games), Clemence (217 games), Bruce Grobbelaar (225 games) and Elisha Scott (283 games).

Reina was rated as the best goalkeeper in La Liga when he joined Liverpool from Villarreal in 2005 and won the Golden Glove award in each of his first three seasons in England.

He spent nine years in total at Anfield, winning the FA Cup (2006), League Cup (2012) and consolidating his place as one of the club's greatest keepers.
