Mourinho confident in Begovic

Consadole Sapporo draw 0-0 against Gamba Osaka in J-League

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is confident Asmir Begovic will do a good job against Manchester City next weekend after Thibaut Courtios was sent off this weekend.

Courtois' red card in the 2-2 draw with Swansea on Saturday brought with it all the expected questions about the recent sale of Petr Cech to Arsenal and if the move now may be seen as an error by Chelsea.

However, Mourinho is adamant they will not miss Cech as Begovic is a great goalkeeper in his own right.

"We don't miss Petr," Mourinho told Sky Sports. "We've got a good keeper, the problem with Petr is not that we miss him because we have two excellent keepers.

"The problem with Petr is that an opponent is better than before.

"Thibaut and Asmir are two fantastic keepers. My club did very well by getting a keeper on time and not on the August 31.

"If my club gives me a keeper on August 31, then we have a problem not just for today but also for the next match.

"Unless the people understand that it's not a red card and they clear the suspension."
