Borini was inserted into the starting lineup but was unable to get any goals or assists as Sunderland and Crystal Palace drew 0-0 on Saturday.

Although Borini didn't score, he was able to get off four shots and even draw four fouls. He was arguably the most dangerous player on the pitch Saturday, and is likely to earn more frequent starts because of it. Sunderland using three forwards was a rare sight, so look for them to possibly try the formation again next week against Norwich.

Borini scored from the spot in the 19th minute and then assisted on Jack Colback's 80th minute goal during Saturday's 3-0 win at Newcastle.

Borini's assist was his first of the season, but his goal was his third overall and second in his last three Premier League matches. Sunderland are in excellent form right now and will look to keep it going next weekend at home against Hull City.

Borini was able to find the net in the 2-2 draw against Southampton on Saturday.

After Borini's controversial comments this last week, he showed up this weekend by getting a goal against Southampton. This is his first goal or assist since October, amazingly. For the most part, the Borini-Sunderland relationship has soured, but this is a bright spot that could hopefully lead to more production from this under-performing Italian.

Borini said that he sees his future with Liverpool, which casts doubt on his current loan with Sunderland being made permanent, reports Sky Sports.

The forward said he is enjoying his time with Sunderland, and has been playing regularly, but he simply does not expect to stay at Sunderland beyond his current agreement.

Borini is available off the bench for Sunderland's match against Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Borini was taken to the hospital during last weekend's match due to illness, but he's recovered in time to at least be able to come off the bench Wednesday.

Borini fell ill during Saturday's match against Cardiff City and was taken to the hospital at halftime, the BBC reports. Manager Gus Poyet said Borini "was sick before the game but wanted to play, but at half-time it was too much." Borini has been released from the hospital, but it would be surprising if he played Wednesday against Aston Villa.

Borini, who is on loan this season from Liverpool, has one goal in 14 Premier League appearances this season. With Steven Fletcher and Jozy Altidore around, Borini's fantasy value is a bit limited.

Borini is back in the Sunderland squad for Saturday's match against Manchester United after sitting out last week due to his loan agreement against Liverpool.

Borini having a week of rest under his belt will be a boost to the team, and a tempting selection for interim manager Kevin Ball.
