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.

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.

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.

Begovic failed to produce a save in Stoke's 1-0 loss to Leicester on Saturday.

Begovic was beaten after Stoke failed to deal with a low cross that was consequently finished from close-range Saturday. Through four matches, Begovic surprisingly only has three saves, but faces a Queens Park Rangers side with just one goal on the campaign in his next appearance.

Begovic made one save in Sunday's 1-1 draw at Hull City.

Begovic failed to keep Hull City out despite the Tigers being reduced to 10 men after just 14 minutes Sunday. The sledding should get much tougher at Manchester City next weekend, before favorable matches versus promoted sides Leicester City and Queens Park Rangers in the subsequent two weeks.

Begovic failed to produce a save in Stoke City's 1-0 season-opening loss to Aston Villa on Saturday.

Begovic made nine saves in Bosnia and Herzegovina's 0-1 loss to Nigeria at the World Cup on Saturday.

Begovic's performance Saturday was significantly better than he had against Argentina in the opener, where he gave up two goals and made only one save. Unfortunately, Bosnia and Herzegovina were eliminated from knockout stage contention with the loss.

Begovic made one save but allowed two goals, including an own goal by defender Sead Kolasinac, during Bosnia and Herzegovina's 1-2 loss to Argentina in their World Cup opener on Sunday.

Argentina are a popular pick to win the entire tournament, so a close result for Bosnia and Herzegovina is encouraging. Things are looking up for Begovic, who will likely have an easier time against Nigeria and Iran to close out the group stage.
