Begovic and Crouch named in Team of the week

Begovic and Crouch named in Team of the week

After Stoke`s impressive away victory at QPR, two players have been named in BBC pundit Garth Crooks team of the week:


GOALKEEPER - ASMIR BEGOVIC
The goalkeeper has been outstanding for Stoke this season, and at times he has had to be. If ever the Potters needed a performance from the Bosnian to ensure their safety in the Premier League, then away at QPR was the time. He was outstanding in a 2-0 win for Stoke.

Did you know? Only Joe Hart and David De Gea have kept more clean sheets away from home in the Premier League than Begovic (five).

Striker- PETER CROUCH

One goal in 26 appearances is not the best return for a striker going into a vital relegation battle but that didn't stop Peter Crouch from wreaking havoc against former club QPR on Saturday. The former England striker scored one and won a penalty which was converted by Jon Walters in a 2-0 win which may be the turning point in a disappointing season for the Potters.

Did you know? Has six away goals this season, his second best haul in the Premier League after bagging eight in 2009-10.
