Arsenal fans, hello and welcome.

The week is almost over but the gravy train of breaking news and information never really grinds to a halt.

Today we’ve got plenty of interesting topics to mull over. Read on below for more and watch the video above if you’re just downright lazy.

Ospina burglary

If you’re having a bad morning spare a thought for Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina, who had his £16million home raided by thieves who stole his Mercedes and took it on a joyride across north London.

The Colombia international was out of the country on international duty when the robbery took place, but his wife and young children are believed to have been in the house sleeping at the time.

Ospina’s £100,000 car was the most notable item stolen and was found abandoned seven miles away in Wembley Park later on the same day.

Vieira set for management?

In lighter news, Patrick Vieira is being touted as the potential next New York City FC manager, with the franchise considering firing current boss Jason Kreis.

The role would represent Vieira’s first senior management position, with reports in the US saying all signs are pointing towards it happening. Potential Gunners boss in the future? We’ll leave that there.

Walcott: Cech is 'perfect'

To finish, Theo Walcott has heaped praise on Petr Cech following the Czech Republic international’s summer arrival.
