NOT PICKED YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM YET? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?


He said: “I have a contract here, I’m happy and I’m going to fight to the end, I want to continue and win a job.

“That’s what I’m working for, I’ve been working for three years and now I’m waiting for the opportunity.”

Ospina, 28, split duties with Cech in pre-season and started in the 5-2 rout of Benfica.

Arsenal’s first competitive game will be the Community Shield clash against Chelsea on Sunday.

Arsene Wenger is still busy working on his squad after signing Sead Kolasinac and shelling out a club-record fee for Alexandre Lacazette.
