Chelsea dealt major blow in their aspirations of winning the Premier League

Cech agitates for a move away The news just keeps getting worse and worse at Chelsea with groans coming from those Chelsea fans reading the Telegraph today, with it reporting that star goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will be out of action for 2-3 months with a knee injury.

The news will put even more pressure on Chelsea defence who have started the season conceding nine goals in their opening four games. A record which is not going to make it easy for them to retain their Premier League crown.

They are now hoping that second choice goalkeeper and new signing, Asmir Begovic – who joined the club in an £8m move from Stoke City in the summer, following the departure of Petr Cech, can live up to expectation.

Begovic has made only one start for the club since his move, however despite Chelsea losing the game against Manchester City 3-0, Begovic impressed hugely and had an excellent game.

Stoke fans have been trying to convince Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern of Begovic’s quality, are convinced that he will do a good job for his new side in the place of Courtois, having been a stand out play for them over the past few seasons!

Chelsea fans. Are you worried about the loss of Courtois? Do you trust Begovic to do a good job in his place? Let us know what you think below!
