Foster is out for Monday's Premier League match against Manchester United after picking up a calf injury in training.

It wasn't a great fantasy matchup anyway for Foster, who will be replaced by Boaz Myhill.

Foster made two saves to record the clean sheet in Sunday's 4-0 win over Burnley.

Foster had few saves to make in what was his third clean sheet of the season. The England international has benefited from the addition of Joleon Lescott to the team's defence and will gain more clean sheets as a result, especially in home games.

Foster earned a clean sheet in Sunday's 1-0 win at Tottenham.

Foster had little to do in the win and it meant a second clean sheet of the young season for the West Brom goalkeeper. It's good news for manager Alan Irvine as he admitted earlier this month that Foster is playing through a broken thumb and he showed no ill effects in this regard. Fantasy owners should note that Foster now has Joleon Lescott playing in front of him and will have less saves to make as a result.

Foster surrendered two goals in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at home to Everton.

The England goalkeeper shook off a thumb injury to start the game and made a critical error for the visiting side’s second goal that saw the ball slither through his legs from an innocuous looking Kevin Mirallas shot. Foster has kept just one clean sheet this season and is a victim of the malaise that is being felt amongst the side’s defenders. Fantasy managers would do well to steer clear whilst manager Alan Irvine is tinkering with West Brom’s back line.

Foster (thumb) should be fit for Saturday’s visit of Everton after overcoming a thumb injury, manager Alan Irvine told the official club website.

Foster (thumb) came home early from England duty after sustaining the injury in training and manager Alan Irvine said: “Ben trained today and has been training but in a controlled way since he came back, we’re not too concerned”. The England international has played every game so far this season for West Brom with one clean sheet from three. Everton’s potent attacking options mean that this Saturday doesn’t represent a good chance to double that tally.

Foster (thumb) pulled out of the England squad and is now a doubt for the home game against Everton, reports the official club website.

Foster sustained the injury during training ahead of England’s friendly against Norway on Wednesday and West Brom director of football Richard Garlick said “at this stage we are optimistic it is not a serious problem”. Foster’s replacement is Boaz Myhill and the next two games against Everton and then at Tottenham mean a clean sheet bonus is unlikely.

Foster did not register a single save during West Brom's 2-2 draw with Sunderland on Saturday.

Foster's clean sheet was gone by the fifth minute of the match after Lee Cattermole banged home the opening score. West Brom held a 2-1 lead after 74 minutes, but Foster was beaten in the 85th minute to grab only the single point.

Tottenham are targeting Foster as a replacement for Hugo Lloris, reports the Mirror.

Lloris is expected to be targeted by Paris St. Germain this summer, which would leave Tottenham searching for a replacement. Both Foster and Manchester City's Joe Hart have been mentioned as potential options, though Foster's price tag would be much more reasonable.
