Boruc (back) has been deemed fit ahead of Saturday's match at Aston Villa, the club's official web site reports. "Artur is OK - he's fit," manager Mauricio Pochettino said Thursday.

Boruc was expected to return last weekend against Cardiff City, but apparently wasn't ready to return. He'll do so this week to face a Villa side that will be without Christian Benteke, after he ruptured his Achilles two weeks ago.

Boruc (back) is not in the 18 for Saturday's match against Cardiff City.

Boruc was expected to return from the back injury that held him out of last weekend's match against Manchester City, but he was not deemed fit. Paulo Gazzaniga will start in his place once again.

Boruc will not play Saturday against Manchester City due to slight back injury, the club's official website reports.

An incredibly tough opponent with their top keeper, Southampton will really put pressure on its back four to step up Saturday. Paulo Gazzaniga will start in Boruc's place.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Boruc made two saves during Southampton's 4-0 drubbing of Newcastle on Saturday.

Boruc was allowed a fairly uneventful game, which allowed him to post an 11th clean sheet through 25 outings this season. That impressive rate makes Boruc a fine option in fantasy leagues, but next weekend's match at Manchester City figures to require much more from the goalkeeper.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Boruc was needed to make just one save Saturday, when Southampton topped Crystal Palace 1-0.

Boruc has now posted 10 clean sheets through 22 games this season. Southampton's defense has been particularly strong on the road, since only two teams have conceded fewer goals away from home thus far.

Boruc managed two saves during Southampton's 3-1 loss to West Ham on Saturday.

Boruc's three goals allowed were the most he has conceded in a game this season. He'll need to put that performance behind him with Liverpool's electric attack visiting Southampton next weekend.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Boruc made four saves and picked up another clean sheet in Southampton's win over Hull City on Tuesday.

Boruc's clean sheet tally now sits at eight through 19 starts on the season. The Saints possess one of the league's more reliable defensive units, which makes Boruc a valuable fantasy commodity that won't force owners to break the bank in most formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Boruc made four saves and kept a clean sheet Saturday versus Fulham.

Boruc has now claimed seven clean sheets in 17 starts this season, making him a consistent performer at the goalkeeper position. He'll hope to make it consecutive scoreless efforts next weekend, when Southampton hosts a Stoke City side that struggles away from home.
