Press conference

‘Will Ospina play? Yes. On Sunday too? Yes’

Arsene Wenger has long spoken of the “two world-class goalkeepers” he has at the club - and as such he follows a clear policy with them.

Petr Cech is our No 1 in the Premier League, David Ospina for the cup competitions - and as such, the Arsenal manager has confirmed that the latter will start on Thursday and on Sunday.


This is what he said at Wednesday’s press conference:


on if Ospina will play…


on if Ospina will play in the Carabao Cup final…


on if it was a tough decision to go with Ospina…

It’s always a difficult decision but I think they are clear about that. Since the start of the season, it’s clear. He played in the whole competition. I have two world-class goalkeepers and I decided from the start on to have clarity in the games they play. I maintain that.


on Ospina saving a penalty at Ostersunds…

It gave us good news on the day, yes. First of all, for us it was important to keep a clean sheet in an away game. On top of that, we saved a penalty, so overall it was good.
