David Ospina started in goal for Arsenal ahead of Petr Cech in the Gunners 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday evening – and fans were thrilled with his performance.
The move to promote the Colombian was reminiscent of Arsene Wenger’s decision to rest Cech in Arsenal’s opening-day Champions League defeat to Olympiacos last season, which prompted a deluge of criticism from fans and pundits.
The Gunners conceded early though Edinson Cavani but Ospina, 28, was involved in a number of top-class saves to keep Arsenal in the game at 1-0.
The Gunners number two helped keep the score down and allowed Alexis Sanchezs’ late strikr to earn Wenger’s side a precious point at the Stade de France.
Supporters shared their enjoyment at Ospina’s stunning display on social media while one fan admitted he had been proved wrong by the Colombia international
Here are a collection of the messages on Twitter:
Wenger will now return his thoughts to domestic football after the draw.
His side take on Hull City in the Premier League this weekend and will be looking to make it 10 points from their first five fixtures this term.
Wenger’s side have lost one, drawn one and won two of their four domestic encounters so far.
