Who’s in Goal? Weeks 23 and 24

It’s only been four weeks since my last article, but in that time we’ve had six game-weeks of Premier League football. During the festive period, we saw managers come and go (does it make any difference?), pundits moan about a lack of winter-break (the only thing stopping England winning the
