Arsenal fans want Ospina to take Cech’s place following display against AC Milan

It would have been understandable if a large number of Arsenal fans were dreading Thursday’s Europa League tie against AC Milan.

The club have had a difficult couple of weeks with some very unsavoury results.

Arsene Wenger’s men were comfortably beaten 3-0 by Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final, and a few days later lost to Pep Guardiola’s side again by the same scoreline, but this time in the Premier League.

The team were unable to bounce back against Brighton last weekend as they suffered a 2-1 loss at the Amex Stadium.

After four defeats in a row in all competitions, Wenger’s job came under increasing pressure, with plenty of fans calling for the board to sack the Frenchman.

On Thursday, though, the Gunners put in a much-needed positive performance as they earned a 2-0 victory over AC Milan in the first leg of their last 16 Europa League tie.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey got on the scoresheet in the San Siro, while Mesut Ozil nabbed assists for both goals.

David Ospina also made a case for himself for the number one role as he managed to keep a clean sheet.

So far, Petr Cech has been in between the sticks for Premier League games and Ospina has been selected for cup matches.

Some supporters want the latter to be the permanent number one.
