Arsenal fans buzzing Ospina keeps Champions League spot

Plenty of Arsenal supporters have given manager Arsene Wenger the thumbs up for deciding to keep faith with goalkeeper David Ospina for tonight’s Champions League tie against Bayern Munich.

The Colombian has started all six of the Gunners’ European fixtures this season, with Petr Cech being used in the Premier League.

Due to the huge importance of the last-16 first leg at the Allianz Arena, questions were raised over who would get the nod to start in between the sticks.

Ospina, who has also started both FA Cup games, has been given the green light by Wenger, who confirmed the news in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday.

Cech has faced criticism on a handful of occasions throughout the season, and he made headlines a fortnight ago when he sent the ball directly to Cesc Fabregas, who hammered the final nail in the coffin with a goal in Chelsea’s 3-1 triumph.

Despite Ospina making just eight appearances in all competitions, he could be a safe bet to start against Bayern given that he made some crucial saves against Paris Saint-Germain during the group phase.

Since Wenger revealed who will be in goal against the German champions, Arsenal fans gave there reactions on Twitter.
