Throughout the day we will be asking readers to vote for their favoured Arsenal starting line-ups, and while we know the team is picked differently depending on our opponents, we would like to know who you rate as our best.
We will kick this off with the goalkeeper, and you could not pick a more relevant subject, given David Ospina’s heroics in midweek, which could well have earned us all three points.
The Colombian was amazing between the sticks, despite letting in a goal in the opening minute of the match, conjuring up a number of top saves to deny the likes of Edinson Cavani and co.
His efforts kept us within touching distance, and Alexis Sanchez managed to level the scoring, before Alex Iwobi was set through for a great opportunity to win us the match, only for his placed shot to be saved.
Arsene Wenger has moved to declare that he has two World Class options in goal after that performance, and many would deem Ospina to have been unlucky to have lost his first-team role in the summer of Petr Cech’s arrival, having been astonishing in the six months before his team-mate’s arrival.
The former Chelsea star has proven to be one of the most consistent shot-stoppers in the English top flight over a large number of years, and you could also argue that he was unfairly benched in favour of his younger counterpart Thibaut Courtois while with the Blues. Their loss is our gain however, and we now have one of the best goalkeepers to ever grace the Premier League.
The former Czech international has conceded six goals already this term, although how much of the blame for the four goals against Liverpool can you stamp on him?
I know who I prefer to see between the sticks, but let me know your selection below.
