Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu was happy to chalk up a seventh successive clean-sheet as his side edged Lille 1-0 on Sunday.
The result, achieved through an Aurelien Chejdou own goal, returned PSG to the summit of Ligue 1 as Sirigu broke Bernard Lama’s sequence of 697 minutes without conceding a goal for the capital club.
The Italian stopper made sure his focus was on the contest and despite the side not playing well, was pleased to collect the three points.
“I was told about this record, but I did not want to be put under pressure, especially for such a delicate game,” Sirigu said.
“We didn’t play a very good game today, but it’s not the same thing each game. Some periods have been better. We were lucky to win today but luck doesn’t come without work.
“Today, we didn’t play with all our potential but we’re taking three points and we are happy.”
PSG defender Sylvain Armand echoed Sirigu’s sentiments believing their league position was an accurate reflection of their season.
“We stay in a good place with this result and we are united as a team,” he said.
“We are top of the league and I feel we deserve to be there.”
Carlo Ancelotti’s side travel to Toulouse on Friday and could put breathing space between themselves and second-placed Olympique Lyonnais by provisionally going clear on top of the standings with a positive result.
