Forster had two saves while keeping a clean sheet in Saturday's win over West Ham.

Forster was not challenged with many shots on goals in the match, but made the two saves necessary to keep the clean sheet. In his five Premier League matches he's maintained a clean sheet in all of them giving a spark to the Southampton defense.

Forster made 10 saves while keeping a clean sheet in Tuesday's scoreless draw with Arsenal.

Forster was called upon time and again in the second half, making eight of his 10 saves in the second 45 minutes. The massive keeper has kept clean sheets in all four Premier League matches he's played in and could help spur the Saints to a big second-half run.

Forster made one save while keeping a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Manchester United.

Forster missed the first 20 Premier League matches with a knee injury; however, he's been outstanding in the past three matches since he returned, keeping clean sheets in all three. In 40 matches with Southampton, he's kept clean sheets in nearly half of those and is one of the top keepers in the Premier League.

Forster (knee) is starting Wednesday against Watford.

Forster slots into the starting XI for the first time this season after recovering from a serious knee injury, as Maarten Stekelenburg was unable to recover from a hamstring issue. Forster is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League, though the matchup against Watford isn't ideal given the excellent play of attackers Odion Ighalo and Troy Deeney.

Forster is fit to play Wednesday against Watford, and he could get the start if Maarten Stekelenburg is unable to because of a tight hamstring.

Forster played in an U-21 match last week and was scheduled for another Monday, but he was held out after Stekelenburg complained of a tight hamstring following Saturday's FA Cup tie. Forster is expected to reclaim the starting spot shortly, which would obviously move Stekelenburg to the bench.

Forster (knee) will not play in Saturday's FA Cup match against Crystal Palace, but he is scheduled to play in the Saints' U-21 match on Monday, manager Ronald Koeman said Thursday.

Forster has already played in an U-21 game, and if he can make it through Monday's without a setback, he could very well return for Premier League action soon. Given the timing, he is unlikely to play Wednesday against Watford, but he could return for the weekend fixture against West Brom.

Forster returned to full training with the first time this week for the first time since rupturing his left patellar tendon last March.

The England international was initially expected to miss up to 12 months as he recovered from the serious knee injury, but he could return to game action as early as January depending on how quickly he gets up to speed in training. Maarten Stekelenburg and Paulo Gazzaniga have handled the goalkeeping duties through the first half of the season, but Forster should reclaim his role as the undisputed No. 1 after he proves his fitness.
