Stop everything! Arsenal's David Ospina has dropped an absolute clanger tonight

The Colombian replaced Petr Cech in the starting lineup and the decision has backfired spectacularly.

ARSENE WENGER DECIDED to drop Petr Cech to the bench for tonight’s clash with Olympiakos due to a ‘slight calf problem’ and the fact that back-up goalkeeper David Ospina had ‘done well’.

Well, we’re all wondering what Wenger will say at full-time.

Because the Colombian dropped a harmless cross into his own net to give the visitors a half-time lead at the Emirates.

What an inexplicable error!


The away side took the lead after 33 minutes when Pardo found the net before Theo Walcott replied within two minutes.

Even if Arsenal pull this back, Ospina’s own goal will be the main talking point.

Is Louis van Gaal planning on staying in Manchester for the foreseeable future?
