Since joining United in 2015, Romero has only played seven Premier League games. He's the club's No.2 behind David De Gea.
Though he's an ever-present in domestic cup games, proving to be one of the best back-up keepers in the world.
That's 27 clean sheets in 42 matches now for Sergio Romero at MUFC. He has a better clean sheet percentage (64.2%) than any other Utd goalkeeper who has played more than three matches for the club

Is there a better no 2 in world football than Sergio Romero? Would get in every premier league outside the top 6

Huge credit goes to Smalling and Lindelof, both have been sensational tonight. Sergio Romero appreciation tweet, the best back up goalkeeper, always delivers when asked to. Top class at the back. :muscle::ok_hand:
