Revealed: 70% of Arsenal fans want Ospina to start against Man United

David Ospina has to take a share of the blame for Antoine Griezmann’s away goal for Atletico Madrid on Thursday night in the first leg of Arsenal’s Europa League semi-final tie against the Spanish powerhouses.

But that does not appear to have stopped Gunners fans thinking that the Colombian is the man they want to see between the sticks for the trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Sunday.

The experienced goalkeeper – valued at £4.5m by Transfermarkt – was clearly ahead of Petr Cech in the opinion of the club’s fans when we asked them whether he should start on Arsene Wenger’s last trip to face the Red Devils and Jose Mourinho as the club’s manager.

Neither Cech or Ospina has enjoyed a flawless season – and neither is on the level as the man who should be in the home goal on Sunday, David de Gea – but as it stands, Ospina is the more popular choice with the fans.
