Foster has been ruled out for six months because of the knee injury he suffered March 14 against Stoke City, the BBC reports.

Initial indications were that Foster would only miss a month, but he underwent surgery on his ACL on Friday, prompting the significantly longer time on the sideline. Boaz Myhill will continue to start in his absence.

Foster has been ruled out for a month because of a knee injury suffered last weekend against Stoke City, The Guardian reports.

Boaz Myhill, who came on for Foster against Stoke, will start from now on, with a very tough first matchup against Manchester City on Saturday.

Foster had to come off in the second half of Saturday's match against Stoke City because of a knee injury, according to the club's official website.

Foster kept playing after receiving treatment around the 51 minute mark, but he was unable to take a goal kick himself due to the issue and was removed a few moments later. Boaz Myhill came on for Foster and would presumably start if Foster has to miss any time.

Foster picked up a clean sheet in Saturday's 0-0 draw against Sunderland.

Foster only had to make two saves in what was a very quiet game for both goalkeepers. The England international has 10 clean sheets this season, four of which have come since the appointment of Tony Pulis as manager last month.

Foster made three saves in Wednesday's 2-0 win against Swansea.

Foster kept his first clean sheet since mid-January with a couple of fine saves to deny the Welsh side. Foster has nine clean sheets on the season and his low price combined with the appointment of manager Tony Pulis makes him a shrewd pickup in any league.

Foster conceded twice in Sunday's 2-2 draw against Burnley.

Foster conceded headed strikes to Ashley Barnes and Danny Ings before his side fought back in the second half to earn a share of the points. The England international made two saves and will search for his next clean sheet on Wednesday against Swansea.

Foster had a tough afternoon in Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

Foster was first beaten by an excellent Christian Eriksen free kick inside the first 10 minutes before Harry Kane doubled the lead after just 15 minutes. The striker then made it three from the spot after 64 minutes. Foster already has eight clean sheets this season and has a good chance at making it nine next week away at Burnley.

Foster kept his eighth clean sheet of the season in Monday's 0-0 draw against Everton.

Foster made four saves and saw a Kevin Mirallas penalty hit the post as he kept up his 100 percent clean sheet record under new manager Tony Pulis. Extending that run next time out at home to Tottenham will be a tough ask.
