Joe Hart picked up his second prize in six days when the Barclays Golden Glove award landed in the safest hands in the Premier League.
Hart said: "It's a great honour to get this. But it doesn't mean I'm the best goalkeeper in the Premier League - I'm collecting it on behalf of the whole team, because we defend as a team.
"A few of the lads have been keeping tabs on it and they were keener for us to get the club record. It's a surprising number of clean sheets to keep, and you've got to be happy.
"I hadn't realised how well we were doing, but it was brought to my attention and Weavs texted me. He was a legend to me when he was here. I'm pleased he's doing well now at Sheffield Wednesday."
Joe, signed from Shrewsbury five years ago, added: "It's crazy! I've won this and got an FA Cup winner's medal in the space of a few days - there was a time I didn't think I'd win anything!
I always thought we'd get to this stage, but thinking it and doing it are two different things
"We've still got a massive game on Sunday and hopefully we'll keep another one, score a few goals and finish the season off right. Let's get third and nail the Champions League place.
"This award will have pride of place somewhere in the house - when I've got somewhere to put it! I've got no furniture at the moment, I've just moved."
