New Chelsea ‘keeper Begovic keen to challenge Thibaut Courtois for starting spot

first_img1 Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic New Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has no desire to play second fiddle to number one goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge.The 28-year-old Bosnian joined the Blues from Stoke City on a four-year deal earlier this month following Petr Cech’s switch to Premier League rivals Arsenal.Begovic’s move has raised questions over his motives, with Belgium international Courtois firmly establishing himself as Chelsea’s first-choice glovesman in last season’s title triumph.However, Begovic, who had been Stoke’s No.1 for the past four seasons, is keen to press his claims with the Premier League champions this term.“I want to test myself against Thibaut, he’s one of the best goalkeepers in the world but I believe in myself. I want to try and get as many games as I can,” he said in several national newspapers.“Hopefully every time I can show everybody what I’m all about and ultimately help this team. We all have to play our part and at a club like this I think you get to do so.“There have been no guarantees. The challenge that’s here, the manager and players was what attracted to me and that was a big part of my decision.“I’ll back myself, absolutely. I’ll be keeping my head down and working hard to see how I can help this team in the future.”Begovic, who ended a five-and-a-half-year association with Stoke, has already noticed the jump in quality on his arrival at Chelsea.“Even after the first week you can see the quality here and how they can improve you with the -levels and demands here,” he added.“It was difficult to leave Stoke after such a long time because of all the ties and relationships I had there. But this is definitely a step up.”last_img read more

Will Greater Houston Get More Flooding This Week

first_img Emergency management officials in the region are monitoring the weather and bracing for possible flooding, damaging winds and hail.“We’ll have periods of rain and thunderstorms and then breaks between,” National Weather Service forecaster Dan Reilly said. “So, it’s not going to be raining the whole time but we certainly will have rounds of thunderstorms right through Friday.”He said those rains are moving in from the southwest. Corpus Christi experienced some heavy flooding Sunday night.Francisco Sanchez with the Harris County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management said the ground and bayous are still saturated from the historical floods last month – and so it doesn’t take a heavy downpour to cause more flooding.“It becomes a little difficult when, as we get later in the week, it’s going to take less and less rain to actually cause these problems to get worse,” Sanchez said. “So we’re keeping an eye on that.”In Galveston County, officials are also monitoring the weather but emergency management coordinator Garret Foskit said they are not too concerned about this week.Meanwhile, the American Red Cross is ready for more flooding in Greater Houston.“We’re meeting with community partners and we are putting shelters on standby,” MaryJane Mudd with the Red Cross Texas Gulf Coast Region said. “In the case that if there is a need, if people do leave their homes based on flood damage or having to evacuate, that we can then reach out to those partners and open those shelters.”Officials advise residents to check weather and traffic conditions before they leave their homes this week.NWS To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen 00:00 /01:20 Share Xlast_img read more
