Ospina worry as keeper picks up another injury

Arsene Wenger will be concerned this morning after reports that David Ospina has picked up another injury while on international duty.

The Arsenal keeper had to be helped off the pitch at the end of a 3-2 win over Bolivia. He picked up a knock in a collision with an opponent during the game which required him to have treatment.

Coming after the injury he picked up against Everton, clashing with Romelu Lukaku, the 26 year old is in the wars a bit at the moment, but hopefully it’s more a case of bruising than anything too serious.

Ospina has been deputising for Petr Cech who damaged his hamstring against Swansea on March 2nd. He was expected to be out for around four weeks, and as yet it’s uncertain whether or not he’ll be ready to return after the international break.

Fingers crossed he is, and that Ospina isn’t too badly hurt, because if they’re not ready it’s youngster Matt Macey who will have be to be thrust in at the deep end when we face Watford in the Premier League next weekend.

I’m calling it, Macey to match Iwobi and score on his Premier League debut.

Arsene's handbrake

I’m not surprised.

gooner 44

has any other club managed to have both keepers injured at the same time?
it could only happen to us!


Chelsea har d the same problem a couple of years ago.

Oh yeah, to Arsenal, on my football manager. Many times.
The juniors usually do a decent job, so from experience, i wouldnt worry….




Exactly! I always said last summer we didn’t need any outfield players we needed more goal keepers. Wenger couldn’t even get that right….

*I’m definitely joking


It definitely is a farce. I always maintain we should have at least 20-30 world class keepers in the squad, but preferably 40.


Kick me in the balls it will be less painful.

Theo's Radar

I’ll dust off my gloves…


Wasn’t it Gabriel that hit Ospina’s back in that challenge?


Yes it was, so I dont know why you are getting thumbs down!! Check the replays


Try Specsacers, bud.


He is also the one that injured Wilshere in the Summer with a tackle in training.


If we’re really really desperate can we not recall szcz?


I suspect that would be complicated/costly, recalling Martinez seems more possible.

Man Manny

Arsene said Cech and Ramsey will definitely be back after the internationals.

Crash Fistfight

Phew, that’s a relief. Ready made cover.

Not sure Czech will get into the team ahead of Iwobi, though.


Ouchspina ๐Ÿ™ Get well quick, David.

Ger Scully

Ospina is like OJ Simpson in The Naked Gun ๐Ÿ˜‰

At least his gloves fit.


I’ve never known such an injury-prone goalkeeper. The amount of knocks he picks up is astonishing, especially when you consider he doesn’t play that often.

Wenger's love child

Macey comes in and pulls a Bellerin, keeping 8 straight clean sheets. Ozil gets five more assists, Sanchez scores in in every match, Campbell shares up top with that guy and combines ruthlessly. It’s a historic end with Iwobi clinching it for us. What? Cough* COYG


I loved “combines ruthlessly!”
Then I thought, ffs give me Campbell and Welbeck goal stats. Then I thought you didn’t give any cos something subconsciously told you they will combine and combine till the opposition scores. Then I started thinking we’ll only have the 8 goals from Sanchez. Then I stopped.

Iwobi's uncle

I am pretty sure, Cech will be back for Watford game!

Recall Martinez?


Totally agree! It’s not like wolves are making use of him inbetween the sticks on match days presently! Plus I love Emy’s presence and frame for a goalkeeper, he’s almost if not same height as cech and has got very sharp reflexes too! Sezny on the other hand is the starting goalie for Roma so it’ll be difficult and even cruel to recall him to come play second fiddle once Cech and Ospina are both fit as it were!


Sending my kids to Arsenal academy, highly likely they’ll get a game with all these silly injuries every year/every season

PJ Bloomfield

Think I saw somewhere Cech should be back for Watford


Bring back Jens!!!!


Ospina does look too lightweight in games. He tends to need treatment almost every time any form of body contact is made, be it from his teammate or an opponent(he should consider playing chess)..

I’m guessing it’s the effect of the back injury he had at Nice before joining us, and that also delayed his debut.. hope he’s fit enough for saturday

He's the soup

The last goalkeeper spontaneously combusted and all that was left was a little green globule. The one before that choked on vomit; it was somebody else’s vomit. We’ve gone through 40 goalkeepers in two years …

(Apologies to Spinal Tap)


Nospina ๐Ÿ™


Am I terrible if I hope Kane and Alliance get injured during the international’s this week. I’m just so tired of the never ending I juries for us and then see the teams we are below stay healthy no matter what. I know Leicester are the ones on top, but I really believe they are going to falter with the pressure and their last 3 games, so at this point, unless Tottenham falters somewhere in the last number of games, they have the best shot to win it all. I still haven’t given up on us yet, but we are… Read more ยป


You have to wonder everytime if it’s not an injury after every single touch we make.. I am just so sick of it.. are we made of sugar or is it finally time to completely change those physio saboteurs secretly paid by Mourinho?


Mourinho is a big hairy cunt. I dislike the man…

Bob Davis

When Wenger said he was going to investigate why we get so many injuries did he ever find out what the reasons were?

I think they should be made public as I’d really like to know!

It’s a farce.

Jack Lewis

One of them will be fit, it always seems that way whenever it looks like a youngster will get a chance.
