Begovic allowed two goals during Saturday's loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Begovic allowed two goals on 10 shots, however, one of them was a penalty. The second goal was the result of a poor decision by the keeper. Mistake aside, Begovic put in a strong performance and he'll be hoping this form continues as he faces a struggling West Ham next.

Stoke is hoping to extend Begovic's stay with the club by agreeing to a new contract with the keeper, reports the Daily Mail.

Begovic's current contract is in its final year, but Stoke will work very hard to agree to new terms with the 27-year-old. They will want to tie up any agreement quickly before transfer rumors begin to swell.

Begovic allowed two goals and was shown a yellow card during Saturday's loss to Crystal Palace.

Begovic made a clumsy challenge late in the first-half Saturday, which resulted in not only a yellow card, but also a conceded penalty kick. To make matters worse, Begovic allowed another goal before intermission, making Saturday's performance one to forget from the Bosnian.

Begovic didn't have to make a single save to post a clean sheet during Stoke City's 1-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.

Hull got off only one shot during the match, which came from Sone Aluko, but it wasn't much of a threat and Begovic got arguably his easiest clean sheet of the season.

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.

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.
