The Premier League Golden Glove is an association football award. It is given to the goalkeeper who has kept the most clean sheets in a Premier League season. In association football, a clean sheet is given to a team's defence or goalkeeper if they prevent their opponents from scoring any goals during a match. For sponsorship reasons, it has been referred to as the Barclays Golden Glove since it was created for the 2004–05 season until the 2015–16 season. Since the 2017–18 season, it is known as the Cadbury Golden Glove.
In 2005, the first Premier League Golden Glove was awarded to Petr Čech of Chelsea. Čech's 24 clean sheets in a single season remains the current record. Since 2005, Čech and Joe Hart have won the award the most amout of times, with 4 each. Pepe Reina was the first goalkeeper to win the award back-to-back, winning it in 3 consecutive seasons between 2005 and 2008. Joe Hart later repeated the achievement with Manchester City between 2010 and 2013.
During the 2008–09 season, Edwin van der Sar surpassed Čech's previous record of 10 consecutive clean sheets by reaching 14. During his streak, Van der Sar went 1,311 minutes without conceding a goal. In the process, he broke both Čech's Premier League record (1,025 minutes), Steve Death's Football League record (1,103 minutes) and also the all-time league record in Britain (1,155 minutes) for most consecutive scoreless minutes.
