Guzan endured a tough season as Aston Villa finished with the 18th-ranked defense in the league and were nearly relegated, leading to his benching for the final five matches of the season.

The American was certainly not at his best, but also fell victim to shoddy defensive play at times. Guzan is still under contract but Villa are rumored to be in the market for a new 'keeper, fueling speculation that the 30-year-old could return to MLS this summer.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Guzan, who was demoted to the bench for last weekend's match against Everton, will likely remain behind Shay Given for Saturday's match against West Ham, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Guzan has been a fairly poor fantasy keeper his season, and while the Villa defense isn't exactly a tight unit, manager Tim Sherwood seems to be pushing the blame to Guzan, who had started the previous 108 Premier League matches. Sherwood did not say whether the change would mean Guzan would start the FA Cup final against Arsenal, pointing that it happens after the Premier League season and he's more concerned with ensuring his side does not get relegated.

Guzan made three saves and suffered a foul during Saturday's surprising 1-0 win over Spurs at White Hart Lane.

Guzan now sits at an even 100 saves for the season, which has helped contribute to his nine clean sheets. It was a nice turnaround after he was beaten three times by QPR on Tuesday, though the going only gets tougher with his next league match coming April 25 against Manchester City.

Guzan fared pretty well against United despite giving up his 17th goal of the season in Premier League play. He'll face the attack of Swansea City on Friday, a team that is averaging eight shots per match.
