Begovic made three saves and suffered a foul during Stoke City's 1-0 win over Leicester City on Saturday, his fifth clean sheet of the season, but third since Boxing Day.

The Stoke defense has really tightened up lately, and they have a number of promising fixtures on the horizon, as their next five Premier League matches are home against QPR, at Newcastle, home against Manchester City, at Aston Villa and home against Hull City.

Begovic (illness) saved two shots Saturday but allowed one to pass which resulted in the 0-1 loss to Liverpool.

Begovic came into Saturday with an illness but managed to start regardless. Considering that he played Saturday, he's also in line to start in net against Manchester United on Tuesday.

Begovic was unable to train Thursday due to an illness and he could miss Saturday's match at Anfield, the Liverpool Echo reports.

If Begovic is unable to play, Thomas Sorensen would get the start. It's not an ideal situation, as defenders Phil Bardsley and Geoff Cameron also didn't train Thursday with illnesses.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic picked up a groin injury last Sunday against Tottenham, and he may be held out of Bosnia and Herzegovina's Euro 2016 qualifier against Israel next Tuesday, the Stoke Sentinel reports.

Begovic said he picked up the knock in the first half against Spurs, and because he was able to keep playing, he is confident about being fit to face Israel.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic failed to produce a save during Saturday's 2-2 draw against West Ham.

Begovic totes a frustratingly low count of just 11 saves to this point in the season. Compared to previous years, Begovic simply hasn't been as valuable from a fantasy perspective this term. He'll next face Tottenham in a road game that should pose a threat on his goal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic produced one save in Stoke City's 1-0 loss to Southampton over the weekend.

Begovic now claims just 11 saves through the first nine matches of this season, a surprising low amount following his 104-save campaign last term. While Begovic faces the tall task of keeping out an in-form West Ham side in Gameweek 10, returning the Britannia Stadium should at provide a comfortable setting.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic produced three saves in Sunday's 2-1 win over Swansea City.

Begovic's three saves surprisingly tied his season high and the goalkeeper was only beaten by a penalty-kick Sunday. Looking ahead, Begovic faces an uphill battle next weekend versus a Southampton side fresh off scoring eight goals in Gameweek 8.

October 7, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Begovic did not record a save in Stoke's 3-1 loss to Sunderland over the weekend.

Begovic has two clean sheets through his first seven matches of this season, but more notably, the Bosnian has mustered just seven saves to date. That alarmingly low total is uncharacteristic of Begovic, who will look to improve when Stoke returns to action Oct. 19 versus Swansea City.
