Asmir Begovic sends message to Chelsea supporters after Porto loss

The Chelsea goalkeeper promises the defending English champions will improve

Asmir Begovic has reassured Chelsea supporters that things will turn their way after a 2-1 defeat by Porto in the Champions League.

Willian levelled for the west London side with a brilliant free-kick after Andre Andre had put Jose Mourinho’s former side into a 1-0 lead.

However, the Blues couldn’t hold on for a point as Maicon flicked a header past Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic just seven minutes after half-time.

And Chelsea number two Begovic, who has been deputising for the injured Thibaut Courtois, promised that the west London side would improve in the coming weeks despite their poor form.

Chelsea played out a 2-2 draw with Newcastle United at St James’s Park in their most-recent Premier League outing.

The Blues have won just two games in the English top-flight this season after beating West Bromwich Albion and Arsenal.
