Given, who started last weekend's match against Everton, is expected to keep the starting job Saturday against West Ham, the Birmingham Mail reports.

While Given allowed two goals to Everton last week, his three saves were enough to grab a much-needed victory for a side that continues to fight off relegation. Manager Tim Sherwood would not speculate who would start the FA Cup final, saying the club needs to focus on staying in the Premier League.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given is starting Saturday against Everton.

It's unclear why Given is in goal, as Brad Guzan is available off the bench. It's not the best of fantasy matchups, particularly with Aston Villa seemingly trying to win games by outscoring opponents and not holding them to clean sheets.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given has only made one appearance for Aston Villa this season and it came during the Capital One Cup.

Given is solidly behind Brad Guzan as the starting goalkeeper and won't likely spend any time in net during Premier League play while Guzan remains healthy. Because of this, the 38-year-old should be passed over in virtually every depth of league.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Given will likely stay on the bench all season behind starter Brad Guzan.

Considering that Guzan is one of the better goalkeepers in the Premier League, Given doesn't stand much of a chance to see time in net this year.
