Sergio Romero has kept clean sheets in his first two games at Manchester United, with the Red Devils kicking off the season with a 100 per cent record.
He made some good saves against Tottenham Hotspur in the final ten minutes, but was hardly tested in the win at Aston Villa last night.
The jury is still out on whether Romero has the ability to replace David de Gea, having had very little to do. But one man who is not convinced is former Liverpool player Dietmar Hamann.

What is Hamman's reason for the uncertainty? Romero's ability with the ball at his feet? His commanding of the area? His ability to claim the ball? No, it is none of the above. It is in fact his nationality.
Talking on BreatheSport,before United's game last night, Hamann said: "The other thing is the keeper, they talk about Cillessen from Holland, Ajax I think he plays for. He is a good keeper, but is he going to win you the league? Without a good keeper you aren't going to win trophies.
"I'm not sure, with Cillessen it is a different league here where he is good enough and the Argentinian goalkeeper, I'm yet to see a good Argentinian goalkeeper in the last 30 years so I don't think he is the answer."
DEFENCE IS HELPING THE KEEPER
There is no doubt United will miss the services of David de Gea if he is to leave Old Trafford. The Red Devils player of the year was influential in helping Louis van Gaal's men return to the Champions League last season.
But so far this season, the Red Devils' defence and holding midfielders have looked much more assured and organised than at any point last season, this has resulted in the goalkeeper having less to do.
That will not be the case all season as United will come up against more difficult opponents, but whenever Romero has been called upon he has shown his shot stopping skills and ability to read the game.
