Chelsea keeper lauded despite Porto loss

Stand in shot stopper Asmir Begovic was lauded on Twitter as he pulled off a string of stunning saves to keep the scores respectable in tonight’s Champions League loss to FC Porto.

The Blues had been on the back-foot as the Portuguese side raced into the ascendancy, calling the Bosnian into action.

As first-choice ‘keeper Thibaut Courtois recovers from a knee injury, the former Stoke man kept his side with only a one goal deficit to chase in a frantic couple of minutes. However, his lackluster teammates were unable to build off his good work.

Much had been made about the decision to sell Petr Cech over the summer, but it seems his replacement is starting to win over fans.

He had earlier saved well from Yacine Behrami’s effort, only for Andre Andre to be on hand to slot in the rebound.

Despite the best efforts of the Bosnian, his side crashed to a 2-1 loss.
