Three appearances for Manchester United’s Argentinian No. 2 and three wins, with only one unlikely wondergoal conceded. Is the erstwhile World Cup finalist a contender for United’s No. 1 shirt?

No. Obviously not. Nevertheless, Ed & Paul look back over a week a half which featured three wins and progress in two competitions. There’s an interview with legendary illustrator Stanley Chow and a preview of the League Cup final with football writer and Southampton fan Alex Stewart.
