Begovic made three saves in Saturday's 4-1 win over Bournemouth.

Begovic, who returned to the starting lineup with Thibaut Courtois' suspended, was very busy the whole game with the Cherries conceding early and pushing hard for a come back. The keeper made some good saves but was fortunate enough on a few occasions not to concede more goals after some hesitant reactions. Begovic will have a much tougher test against the dominant Spurs on May 2.

Arsenal may be eliminated from the title race, but a home match against Norwich easily puts Petr Cech on top of the goalkeeper rankings this week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic was given the start Saturday at Swansea and recorded five saves, but failed to keep a clean sheet in the 1-0 loss.

Begovic will get a chance to be the club's No. 1 goalkeeper next season and will be a clean sheet candidate the rest of the way.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic will be a substitute for Saturday's match against Bournemouth now that Thibaut Courtois has returned to the starting lineup.

Begovic has been holding down the starting goal keeper position since the injury to Thibaut Courtois back in August. He'll most likely remain on the bench as a backup, now that the Belgian keeper has returned to the lineup, and his Premier League starts will be very limited.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic may lose his spot in the starting XI thanks to the return of Thibaut Courtois in Saturday's fixture with Bournemouth.

Begovic has done yeoman's work in filling in for Courtois, but as soon as the Belgian international was fully fit, he was always going to recapture his starting spot back. It's unclear as to whether Courtois will play on Saturday, which may mean Begovic gets another start, but from that point moving forward, Premier League starts will come few and far between for Begovic.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made four saves while keeping a clean sheet in Sunday's scoreless draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

Begovic made a number of smart saves in a match that the Bosnian keeper did well to preserve a point for the Blues. In 12 matches in relief of an injured Thibaut Courtois, Begovic has conceded 18 goals and kept four clean sheets including in each of the past two matches. With Courtois' return imminent, Begovic will provide a sturdy backup, but nothing more in the not too distant future.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made two saves while keeping a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Norwich City.

Begovic had a mostly quiet day, needing only two saves to keep a clean sheet. With Thibaut Courtois coming back in December, Begovic's role as a starting keeper is quickly coming to a close. In 11 matches, Begovic has conceded 18 goals and kept three clean sheets.

November 7, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made one save and conceded once in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Stoke City.

After some strong build-up play, Begovic was a bit slow to react and crawl across the goal to parry Marko Arnautovic's strike, which ended up being the difference in the match. While Begovic hasn't been bad, one has to imagine that with Thibaut Courtois in net, Chelsea would not have lost seven of their opening 12 matches. After the international break, the Blues will look to reset against Norwich City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic made four saves and conceded three goals in Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool.

After scoring early, Chelsea seemed content to sit back and absorb pressure. However, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp's "gegenpress" style seemed to catch up with the Blues as Liverpool poured it on in the second half. Begovic has conceded 10 goals in his last five Premier League starts and 17 times in nine matches this season. In what's been a dreadful season for Chelsea, Begovic has done little to make fans forget about how valuable Thiabut Courtois can be for the team.
