The 29-year-old goalkeeper missed the victory at Wigan at the weekend in order to have surgery on a groin problem.

But Baggies boss Steve Clarke played down the severity of the problem and stressed that it is all part of life as a footballer.

"Ben had a very minor surgical procedure to repair something," said Clarke, quoted in the Daily Mirror.

"Players put their bodies on the line and that's part and parcel of being a professional footballer.

"Sometimes you have to play with little injuries, which they do, and we have great help from our medical staff who play their part really well."

Although Boaz Myhill is likely to deputise again for Saturday's home clash with Chelsea, Foster should be back for the trip to Sunderland on November 24.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
