Southampton keeper and Premier League clean sheet leading Fraiser Forster is reported to be out for the rest of the season after it became known that he will need to undergo knee surgery following the injury he picked up in the Saints' 2-0 win over Burnley. The keeper has 13 clean sheets this season, 2 more than Swasea's Fabianski and Liverpool's Mignolet.
This is a huge loss for Southampton. The Saints have the best defense from the league and Forster was finally making a splash since his transfer from Celtic to the south England side, earning a call-up to the national team in the process. That call-up will now need to wait as he will not be fit for the English game, a Euro 2016 qualifier, against Lithuania this weekend.

@CitySarajevo Think they will get in. 7th place will probably be Europa League so even if they do drop there's 10 points between them and 8th Swansea.
