Shay Given reacts on Twitter to Fraser Forster's performance v Leicester

Southampton Football Club

The Stoke City goalkeeper heaped praise on the Southampton man during his display against the Foxes.

Stoke City man Shay Given lauded Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster on Twitter after he put in a superb performance against Leicester City on Sunday afternoon.

Leicester managed to score past Forster but the Southampton shot stopper denied them with several excellent saves.

And Stoke's Given took to social media to show his appreciation:

Forster was easily the difference between Leicester being limited in front of goal and scoring several more.

The Saints goalkeeper was obviously given help by his defenders, including the likes of Virgil van Dijk.

But Forster himself was incredible. However good Joe Hart is, the Manchester City man will know his Southampton counterpart is more than good enough to represent England - and is therefore breathing down Hart's neck with every incredible save.

How blessed are the three Lions to have so many good shot stoppers? And how happy must Southampton fans be that Forster is back from injury?

It's a shame for Stoke, of course, that their own Jack Butland is out injured.
