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.
