The time for Brad Guzan to prove his worth at Aston Villa has finally come.

The American goalkeeper is slated to become the Villans' starter for the next month after scans revealed that regular starter Shay Given has a hamstring tear. Guzan replaced Given in the first half of Saturday's 1-0 loss to Manchester United and did not allow a goal.

The next month will be big for Guzan, who has struggled for playing time since joining Aston Villa in 2008. A solid showing in the coming weeks could also attract potential suitors during the winter transfer window as well as help Guzan re-gain consideration for the U.S. men's national team.

Guzan's first-ever start in the Premiership will come on Saturday against Bolton Wanderers.

How do you see Guzan faring for the next month?
