Asmir Begovic showed that he can be depended upon if anything happens to first choice keeper Thibaut Courtois. The Bosnian pulled two good saves against Brentford to keep a clean sheet in the FA Cup match on Saturday.

His transfer is still up in the air, and Chelsea manager Antonio Conte didn’t say exactly if Begovic will leave or stay.

The Chelsea boss said: “It’s the same situation as for Iva. There are three days to finish this transfer window. The situation is very clear with Asmir.

“Asmir is a really important player for me, a really good goalkeeper, important in the changing room. We are open to offer him the possibility to go in another team, but it’s important we have a substitution. We have some situations we are seeing, but we are not closer.

“He loves Chelsea, his teammates, the club. We have a really good relationship and for sure it won’t be a problem.”
