David Raya made Premier League history during Arsenal's 3-0 win over Brighton

Arsenal's goalkeeper, David Raya, has achieved a remarkable milestone in the Premier League, surpassing former Manchester United star David de Gea and ex-Liverpool icon Pepe Reina.

Setting a New Record

After securing a clean sheet against Brighton, Raya etched his name in the annals of Premier League history by becoming the first-ever Spanish goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet in five consecutive away games.

Raya's exceptional performances between the posts have positioned him as a strong contender for the coveted Golden Glove award in the Premier League this season.

Raya's achievement comes on the back of Arsenal's impressive defensive record, with the team conceding just four goals in almost all of their matches since the start of the New Year.
