Joe Hart Euro 2012 vs Italy 01

Joe Hart along with Pepe Reina and Petr Cech have won the award three times.

The Premier League Golden Glove is an annual association football award presented to the goalkeeper who has kept the most clean sheets in the Premier League. For sponsorship purposes, it has been referred to as the Barclays Golden Glove since its inception during the 2004–05 season. Originally, the Golden Glove could only be won outright by a single player. Should there have been a tie in the number of clean sheets, the goalkeeper with the superior clean sheets-to-games ratio received the award. However, starting in the 2013–14 season, the Golden Glove can now be shared by goalkeepers with an equal number of clean sheets, regardless of the number of games they played.

The Premier League was founded in 1992, when the clubs of the First Division left The Football League. They established a new commercially independent league in order to negotiate their own broadcast and sponsorship agreements. Individual awards for players were soon created, with the Golden Boot presented at the end of the inaugural season, and the Premier League Player of the Season award first bestowed the two seasons later. However, it took over a decade to elapse before the Premier League Golden Glove was first awarded in 2005.

Pepe Reina, Joe Hart and Petr Čech have each won the award on three occasions, the most times out of all keepers. Both Reina and Hart achieved this in three consecutive seasons, setting another record for most consecutive awards. David de Gea holds the record for most clean sheets in a season with 24 in the 2014–15 season, as the season is ongoing de Gea is still capable of five more clean sheets. In the process de Gea beat former Man United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar's record of 1,311 minutes without conceding as he went 1,391 minutes without conceding, he streak stands as the second longest in the world after Mazarópi's 1,816 minutes. de Gea is the current winner.
