When your Goalkeeper turns out to be the only deserved candidate for the Man Of The Match, after a dreadful performance from you whole team and a scoreline of 3-0, you know something weird is going on!
Seriously, if it wasn’t for Begovic, we could have been down by 5-0 or 6-0, maybe even more. The Bosnian was called into action even before he had the time to settle down. Aguero had a great chance to open the scoring in the 20th second of the game when he latched onto a David Silva pass, only to be impressively denied by Chelsea’s second choice Goalie!
It didn’t stop there. Before Aguero opened his account in the 30th minute, he could have easily scored a hat-trick and embarrassed us profoundly, but thanks to the Bosnian, at least we were still in the game!
Talking after the match, Begovic tried to play down our terrible performance and hopes we will get back to our best against West Brom, next weekend:
“All we can do is get past this start, improve on the training ground, get our sharpness going and look to West Brom.
“It’s still early so we have time to pick up the points we have lost but we need to get some results in the next couple of games to get our season going and then hopefully we can push on for the rest of the season.
“Man City had a point to prove and they came on aggressively from the start. We didn’t match that intensity in the first half, but we responded and in the second half had some chances and were more in control.
“If you don’t score it’s difficult though and unfortunately they sucker-punched us with the second goal which killed the game.”

Thibaut Courtois will probably be back for our trip to the Hawthorns next weekend. Amidst our lack of transfer business this summer, at least we have managed to snatch up a World Class goalkeeper as our second choice. That’s got to be one positive after our forgettable performance yesterday!
