David Ospina has revealed that he is staying at Arsenal, with the intention of challenging Petr Cech for a first-team role.

Arsenal’s experience could win them the title

Although it would seem that most JustArsenal readers have given up on the Gunners winning the title, the fact remains that there are still 27 points up for grabs and the race is far from over.
