Borini (ankle) is expected to be fit for Saturday's match against Stoke City.

Borini aggravated the injury recently but wasn't expected to miss considerable time, though he was left out last weekend because of a lack of match fitness. Jermain Defoe suffered an ankle injury last weekend, though he is also likely to be available Sunday, which may cap Borini's playing time.

Manchester City has yet to allow a goal this season, and thanks to his role in their attack, Aleksandar Kolarov grabs the top spot in the weekly defender rankings yet again.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Borini (ankle) is on the bench Saturday against Southampton.

Borini was a decent performer before suffering his ankle injury, and while he's fit enough for the bench, Steven Fletcher and Duncan Watmore will lead the line.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Borini (ankle) is fit to play in Saturday's match against Southampton.

Borini has started each of the five matches he's been fit for with the Black Cats after coming over from Liverpool at the end of the transfer window. While he has no goals or assists, he has picked up three yellow cards. The 24-year-old Italian winger has been a good goalscorer at every stop and is bound to break duck one of these weeks.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Borini (ankle) is out Sunday against Everton.

Borini was a bit of a long shot to play, and his absence will open up a spot in the starting lineup for Jermain Defoe. Borini's next opportunity to play will come Nov. 7 against Southampton.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Borini had an injection in his injured ankle and is expected to return to training Friday, manager Sam Allardyce said Wednesday.

Given the late return to training after missing time with the injury, it seems like a bit of a long shot that Borini would start this Sunday against Everton, though he could theoretically be available off the bench. Steven Fletcher has played very well of late, which doesn't force the team to rush Borini back.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Borini faces a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's match against Newcastle because of a knock suffered last weekend against West Ham, manager Sam Allardyce said Friday.

Allardyce described Borini as a "slight doubt" due to the ailment, but if he has to miss the match, Jermain Defoe could find his way back into the starting lineup.

Borini signed a four-year contract with Sunderland on Monday after transferring from Liverpool.

Borini spent the 2013/14 season on loan at Sunderland and the Black Cats have been trying to get him back ever since. He was adamant about staying at Liverpool and fighting for a starting job, but it never materialized, particularly after they added Christian Benteke and Danny Ings this summer, plus the arrival of Divock Origi after his loan. Borini will find playing time much easier to come by at Sunderland, and he could very well start as part of a three-man attack with Jermain Defoe and Jeremain Lens.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Borini saw action in 12 Premier League matches over the course of the 2014-15 season, finishing with just one goal and one assist after a total of 392 minutes on the pitch.

Borini spent the majority of his season on the bench as four other Liverpool forwards ended up with larger roles than the 24-year-old. He's on contract at Anfield for another two years, but his best bet to see playing time over that time span will be on a potential loan stint with another club.
