Edwin van der Sar must keep out West Bromwich Albion's less-than-lethal attack for 84 minutes at the Hawthorns on Tuesday to set a new Premier League goalkeeping record. The Manchester United keeper has not been beaten in the 942 minutes since Arsenal's Samir Nasri scored the second of his two goals on 8 November. Chelsea's Petr Cech holds the current record at 1,025 minutes, which he took from United's Peter Schmeichel in 2005, but that is still short of Steve De'Ath's Football League best of 1,103 minutes for Reading and the British record for all competitive games, held by Chris Woods of Rangers, who once went unbeaten for 1,196 minutes (19 hours and 56 minutes).

Alas, poor Cech, and poor Czechs. The Chelsea keeper did, indeed, have their life in his hands, but uncharacteristically dropped it, spilling a straightforward cross at Nihat's feet to allow Turkey an equalising goal with three minutes to play.
