Stoke City boss Tony Pulis is confident Asmir Begovic will come back stronger from the disappointment of losing his Premier League spot.

Begovic has lost his place to Dane Thomas Sorensen.

Pulis told The Sentinel: "I think he's a top goalkeeper. Players have good times and bad, but people forget that even the great players have periods when things haven't gone too well.

"But that's when you need a bit of character. Asmir will be fine."
