Arsenal fans are actively expressing distaste at the fact that Arsene Wenger has chosen David Ospina ahead of Petr Cech in goal for today’s clash with West Ham.

Cech’s been a standout performer for the Gunners this season following his move from Chelsea last summer, but he’s been on the sidelines recently after picking up a calf injury in March.

Cech kept out

As a result the aforesaid Ospina has kept goal in his stead, producing a number of impressive displays, including a great showing during the north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.

And yet fans of the clubs took to Twitter to express mixed opinions over Wenger staying loyal to Ospina, despite the fact Cech is reportedly fully fit.

The main theme of the complaints suggests that Cech should have been immediately reintroduced to the Arsenal fold. We know right, harsh?

Fans react

As it stands Arsenal are 1-0 up at the Boleyn Ground following a Mesut Ozil opener. If another clean sheet can be kept then Wenger’s decision may be vindicated. What’s more, Cech could find it increasingly difficult to get his place back.

Arsenal fans, should Cech have started today’s game? Let us know in the comments box provided.
