Maarten Stekelenburg will miss his second consecutive match with a toe injury. Paulo Gazziniga will deputize for the Week 17 visit of Spurs.
The news at St. Mary's isn't good. The team has been doing poorly on the pitch and they will once again be without their first choice goalkeeper. To make things worse, Spurs will be coming back to full health with the trio of Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele available at the same time for the first time in a few weeks. It's always dangerous to bet on big performances on the road but this looks like it's shaping up to be a big win for Spurs. Thu, Dec 17, 2015 12:39:00 PM

Maarten Stekelenburg was the most prominent Saints player as he made a few solid saves but couldn't keep out the one goal that mattered.

The story was more about Southampton failing to register any serious threat on the Stoke City goal than it was about the Dutch international making a few solid saves. Southampton will have come to expect more from themselves at home against mid-table competition but all they could muster were a couple of Dusan Tadic half-chances and a header over the crossbar from Virgil van Dijk. Not a great way to come back from the international break.

Veteran goalkeeper Kelvin Davis came in for his first PL start of the campaign - against Leicester - after Maarten Stekelenburg picked up an injury in training.

Stekelenburg had been called up to the Dutch squad this week as cover for the injured Tim Krul and Jasper Cillessen, but it was the Fulham loanee who found himself in the treatment room after hurting his back during the Saints final session on Friday. Stekelenburg has been an ever-present in the league, however, his performances have divided opinion since joining as cover for Fraser Forster. The 33-year-old averages just over one save per game while opponents - this term - have been scoring with 1 in every two shots on target. The full extent of his injury is currently unknown.

Southampton kept a clean sheet with ease today as they only allowed Norwich to get six shots off.

Norwich were down to 10 men midway through the first half and that was part of the reason they couldn't get anything going against the Saints, but Southampton were brilliant in defense and did well to only allow six shots. Out of the six, only one was on target, and it was easily saved by Stekelenburg. Southampton's defense seems to be getting back on track and we feel now is a good time to invest, especially with Ryan Bertrand coming back soon.

Maarten Stekelenburg started for Southampton in their Europa League qualification match against Vitesse Arnhem.

It seems Stekelenburg has won the Saints starting goalkeeper job and it's no surprise considering he was signed due to the fact Ronald Koeman didn't feel good about Paulo Gazzaniga and Kelvin Davis. Southampton have had a solid defense for two years in a row now and despite losing two of their starting defenders, we expect them to be at least average this season. Stekelenburg makes for a good fantasy option.

Veteran keeper Maarten Stekelenburg has been obtained by Southampton after they worked out a loan deal with parent club Fulham for the entire 2015/2016 season.

Stekelenburg joined Fulham two seasons ago when the Cottagers suffered through a season that saw them relegated. After being loaned away last season, Fulham have done so again, as a keeper of Stekelenburg's stature has no place in the Championship. Instead he will backup Fraser Forster, with a chance to be the starter until Forster returns to fitness. Stekelenburg will be much more pleased with the defensive abilities of his new club compared to his last taste of the to flight.

Maarten Stekelenburg gave up two goals and his teammates couldn't even manage one in a critical struggle near the bottom of the table.

Maarten Stekelenburg and his Fulham teammates continue to look like a strong contender for relegation as the lost 2-0 to a Swansea squad that has struggled mightily over the last two months. If Fulham are to stay alive in the Premier League to continue their squad makeover they will need to start picking up points against other struggling clubs and this will have to be seen as an opportunity lost as Swansea and Crystal Palace both picked up 3 points around them in the standings.

Fulham have been giving up goals at a disturbing pace and the returns of Maarten Stekelenburg and Brede Hangeland couldn't stop Arsenal from scoring twice in a comfortable 2-0 win.

It was always going to be tough for Fulham to do anything against the league leaders and some would say that keeping the damage to 2-0 represents progress for a team that has sustained some major beatings this season. Still, even the staunchest Fulham supporter will admit that the Cottagers were never really in this match. With rumors that they are after reinforcements in the transfer window, supporters will have to hope that a new acquisition can inspire the club who currently sit just above the relegation zone.

Maarten Stekelenburg has returned from his injury layoff to start for Fulham in the club's FA Cup match with Norwich City on January 14th.

In the absence of both Stekelenburg and Brede Hangeland, Fulham haven't looked good. They haven't even looked like a Premier League team some weeks. The return of both players for the FA Cup clash with Norwich will boost their prospects of staying up for new manager Rene Meulensteen.

Maarten Stekelenberg has been given clearance to return to action and may get the start in the Cottager's upcoming Monday night game against Crystal Palace. Boss Martin Jol also stated that Brede Hangeland, Scott Parker, and Dimitar Berbatov are also available for the clash.

The return of the veteran Dutch international is a big boost for Fulham as he was one of the more marquee signings over the summer. While probably too risky to count on for this gameweek, his current 7.3m price tag is tantalizing in the right matchup as he is a solid keeper.

Maarten Stekelenburg left last weekend's match after a collision with Jozy Altidore and has not recovered in time for this weekend's match.

With Stekelenburg out, Fulham will start David Stockdale. Stockdale isn't a bad keeper but given the opposition he isn't a wise choice for fantasy managers this week. The absence of Keiran Richardson - Fulham's first choice left back - makes Stockdale slightly less attractive.

The Dutch goalkeeper was forced off after 75 minutes after a collision with Sunderland forward Jozy Altidore.

Both players were making their Premier League debuts and Jozy Altidore came out the better of the two with Stekelenburg having to leave the match. David Stockdale came on for the Dutch international and finished out the win. At this point it is unclear whether Stekelenburg will be healthy in time for next weekend's clash with Arsenal.
