Brad Friedel and other incredible Premier League records

Most consecutive Premier League appearances: 310 Brad Friedel's incredible run, which stretched from 14 August 2004, ended this weekend when manager Andre Villas-Boas selected Hugo Lloris in goal, ahead of the American, for Tottenham's game against Aston Villa. However the all-time record for consecutive league appearances is held by Tranmere Rovers midfielder Howard Bell, who made 375 consecutive starts between 1946 and 1955 (401 including 26 FA Cup appearances).

Brad Friedel's incredible run of 310 consecutive starts in the Premier League, spanning eight-years and three clubs, came to an end at the weekend.

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas instead opted to start Sunday's match against Aston Villa with summer signing Hugo Lloris.

Here, we reflect on the American's record and look at some other runs achieved in the Premier League era.
