I know that it is still a bit too early to really judge just how good the Arsenal and Colombian international keeper David Ospina is going to be in the English Premier League, or even whether he is going to continue to keep out our long standing number one Wojciech Szczesny.
But how often do we hear people say that it takes time for players to get used to the rough and tumble of football in England? So maybe we should give some more credit to Ospina for the way that he has hit the ground running, just as the TV pundits and fans have been raving over Alexis Sanchez.
Because our new keeper has some pretty amazing stats so far. After conceding the fewest goals in the group stages of the World Cup finals last summer, the 26-year has conceded no goals in his three Premier League games, no goals from his one FA cup game, one penalty given away by Szczesny in the Champions League and the two in his debut against Southampton in the League cup.
And when you put him up against David De Gea and Thibaut Courtois in the Squawka.com stats comparison, he looks even better.
Going on a 90 minute average, Ospina comes top or joint top in the key categories of saves per game, saves per goal, punches per game, catches per game and clean sheets, as well as the overall scores. So while it is clear that we will need more time to judge him, Ospina has made a fantastic start and is really giving his competitor no chance whatsoever of getting a Premier League start anytime soon.
Have Arsenal really got a new number one? And could the signing of Ospina prove to be nearly as important as that of Alexis?
