The shoulder injury to the second choice Arsenal keeper David Ospina is not thought to be a major problem that will keep him out of action for long, he may well be wondering when he will get another first team start. Unless Ospina is fit for the Capital One Cup game away to Sheffield Wednesday next week it could be some time.
Because Petr Cech was simply outstanding against Bayern Munich and it was clear that without him we would not have recorded the stunning victory that keeps Arsenal´s Champions League hopes alive. The fact that it was a blunder from Ospina that put the Gunners´ backs against the wall in the first place will surely not have been lost on the manager.
And if he needed any more evidence to show the value of having a world class keeper between the sticks, the performance of Manuel Neuer in the Bayern goal will have provided it. The German international may have finally been caught out but without him Arsenal would have been ahead long before then. His save from Walcott´s header was breathtaking and up there with the best ever.
Our own number one pulled off a number of fantastic stops, without which we would not have won and probably would have lost, so will Wenger now play his best keeper in all of the important games?
