Ospina (shoulder) is available off the bench Sunday against Spurs.

Petr Cech will get the start, as usual in Premier League play, giving Ospina close to no fantasy value this week.

Ospina (shoulder) returns to full training Friday, TalkSport reports.

The Colombian will push to return to his back-up position behind Petr Cech for the derby with the Spurs. Even if that happens, though, he is not a fantasy factor with Cech picking up the starts in the Premier League.

Ospina (shoulder) will be sidelined until after the November international break, manager Arsene Wenger said Thursday.

Ospina, who suffered the injury over the latest international break, wasn't likely to get much Premier League playing time anyway, with Petr Cech firmly entrenched as the Gunners' No. 1 keeper.

Ospina will not be available for Tuesday's Champions League match against Bayern Munich because of a shoulder injury suffered while on international duty, manager Arsene Wenger said Monday.

Ospina started Arsenal's first two Champions League group stage matches, but he struggled considerably and was very possibly being replaced by No. 1 Petr Cech anyway.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger started Ospina in goal in Tuesday's Champions League loss to Olympiakos.

The Colombian scored an own goal in the 3-2 defeat, and the Greek side was able to take the lead three separate times in the match. Consecutive losses in the group stage now leave Arsenal in danger of not advancing to the knock-out rounds.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger may choose Ospina to start in the Champions League against Olympiacos, reports the Daily Mail.

The manager said that he needs to give Ospina playing time, and that decisions of who to play would be taken game by game. Ospina started the last Champions League match for the Gunners as they lost to Dinamo Zagreb.

Ospina returned to training Arsenal on Tuesday, manager Arsene Wenger said.

Despite his solid play last season after taking over for Wojciech Szczesny, Ospina is headed for a backup role this year after the Gunners bought Petr Cech from Chelsea. Given the lack of playing time, Ospina could be on the move this summer, though a landing spot in the Premier League appears to be a long shot.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ospina has garnered interest from Fenerbahce ahead of a potential summer transfer, the Daily Mail reports.

Ospina only arrived at Arsenal last summer, but could already make his exit given the Gunners' reported interest in signing Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech. Should Cech complete a move to Arsenal, he would certainly assume their starting position, leaving Ospina and Wojciech Szczesny to compete for backup duty. Although Szczesny was frozen out for the second half of last season, his homegrown status and long-term potential is thought to be more enticing than the solid yet unspectacular Ospina. As a result, Ospina could move elsewhere this summer, having enjoyed a commendable five-month stint as Arsenal's first-choice goalkeeper.
