David Ospina’s man of the match performance against PSG on Tuesday night means he’ll almost certainly get the nod for the team’s next Champions League fixture – at home to FC Basel in a couple of weeks time.
The Colombian started his first game of the season and kept Arsenal alive at times with some outstanding goalkeeping. He had been widely tipped to leave this summer, but has obviously had some assurances from Arsene Wenger that he’d be given chances in the side.
And he was keen to show his stuff last night in Paris.
“We all try to make the most of every chance,” he said. “This was a good match to show what I can do. I have to keep on working and make the most of every moment I get to play.”
Ospina got the backing of his manager post-game too, who said, “Tonight he showed his detractors, those who doubted him, that he is a very good goalkeeper.
“Last year he made a mistake in the Champions League and everyone jumped all over him. He showed what he’s about tonight.”
