Tony Pulis mum on West Brom's keeper choice after Ben Foster's error

West Bromwich Albion head coach Tony Pulis defends goalkeeper Ben Foster after his side's 2-1 defeat at Aston Villa.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis is keeping his cards close to his chest in terms of his goalkeeper selection for Saturday's FA Cup quarterfinal at Aston Villa.

The Premier League derby between the two clubs at Villa Park on Tuesday ended in a 2-1 victory for the hosts after a stoppage-time error from Ben Foster saw the Baggies and England shot-stopper give away a penalty that was converted by Christian Benteke.

Prem Forecaster: LFC on top-4 bubble

Liverpool, which is unbeaten in 12 straight Premier League games, continues to steadily climb the league table.
Liverpool, which is unbeaten in 12 straight Premier League games, continues to steadily climb the league table.

In three rounds of Premier League games since Insider's previous Prem Forecaster, little has ultimately changed in the title or relegation races, though Chelsea did stumble momentarily. The Champions League race is where the true drama took place, as one team's struggles were a boon for two others.

As a reminder, the Forecaster is an end-of-season table projection fueled by ESPN's Soccer Power Index (SPI), a regression-based algorithm designed to predict soccer matches. SPI simulates the remainder of the season 10,000 times, using the odds of each projected match, with the end result presented in the table below.

In this edition we examine table risers and fallers over the past few weeks; break down the title, Champions League and relegation battles; and preview an upcoming match with major Champions League qualification implications. To begin, here's our updated top-to-bottom table forecast:

Chelsea closer to Premier League title, but are Everton in a relegation scrap?

Manchester United grab another three points, while Aston Villa break their losing streak with a vital extra-time winner.
A full slate of midweek fixtures saw Tim Sherwood lead Villa to victory, an apologetic Ben Foster and a water bottle showdown between Gus Poyet and Steve Bruce.
The ESPN FC panel discuss why Chelsea have been able to maintain their lead atop the Premier League as they held on for a 1-nil victory over West Ham.

It's time to run the rule over the Heroes and Villains of matchday 28 in the Premier League, as there were plenty of exciting midweek fixtures.

HEROES

Twice, Jonas Gutierrez has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. Twice, he has beaten it. To fight that battle with courage and dignity, whether that battle is won or lost, is an achievement that outstrips any of the trivialities this column covers from week to week. To fight it twice, to beat it twice and to return to one of the world's most demanding...

Tony Pulis has goalkeeping decision ahead of FA Cup match vs. Villa

West Bromwich Albion head coach Tony Pulis defends goalkeeper Ben Foster after his side's 2-1 defeat at Aston Villa.

A disastrous performance from West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster was the main reason behind Albion's 2-1 loss to local rivals Aston Villa.

Foster had looked uncharacteristically nervous from early on in the game, letting a Gabriel Agbonlahor shot squeeze through his legs only to just about claw the ball back before it crossed the line. He mishandled a tame Jack Grealish shot and also dropped a Fabian Delph effort from long range late on.
