Ospina made two saves in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Everton.

Ospina's best moments in the match weren't technically saves - on a few occasions he moved confidently off his line and snuffed out scoring opportunities before they fully materialized. He's marked his territory as Arsenal's No. 1 keeper.

Ospina registered seven saves during Arsenal's 2-1 loss to Tottenham over the weekend.

Ospina's two goals allowed Saturday were the first he's conceded in four Premier League starts this season. While the Colombian made a number of saves to prevent further damage, he also parried the ball into dangerous areas on many of those occasions, including Tottenham's opening goal. It's too early to tell if that could plague Ospina moving forward, but it appears he's made Arsenal's starting goalkeeper position his own heading into Tuesday's home match versus Leicester City.

Ospina is in the starting XI for Saturday's match against Spurs.

With three clean sheets in three Premier League starts, Ospina continues to play well enough to keep Wojciech Szczesny on the bench, though Saturday's challenge may be his toughest yet.

Ospina recorded his third consecutive clean sheet while making two saves in Sunday's 5-0 win over Aston Villa.

Ospina has claimed Arsenal's starting goalkeeper position since the turn of the year, as the Colombian has not only started the Gunners' past three Premiership games, but he's posted a clean sheet in all three outings. As opposed to the occasionally erratic Wojciech Szczesny, the 26-year-old Opsina represents a calming figure at the back for Arsenal, which should allow him to remain in goal for this weekend's North London derby versus Tottenham.

Ospina is in the starting XI for Sunday's match against Aston Villa.

Manager Arsene Wenger indicated this week that Ospina will continue to have to battle Wojeiech Szczesny for starts, but the former has now gotten three in a row, and with a solid clean sheet opportunity Sunday, there appears to be little reason to switch back is Ospina can keep the Villains out.

Ospina made four saves in Arsenal's 2-0 win over Manchester City on Sunday, his second consecutive clean sheet.

Ospina got another start in place of Wojciech Szczesny, who is looking farther away from getting his job back with the way Ospina is playing. He also has a few solid matchup on the horizon, with Arsenal hosting Aston Villa on Feb. 1, traveling to face Spurs on Feb. 7 and then hosting Leicester City on Feb. 10.

Ospina made two saves to post a clean sheet during Arsenal's 3-0 win over Stoke City on Saturday.

Ospina got the start in place of Wojciech Szczesny, who was presumably dropped after getting caught smoking a cigarette in the locker room after Arsenal's loss to Southampton on New Year's Day. It's unclear how long the punishment will last, though it's entirely possible that Ospina could be back on the bench for Sunday's match at Manchester City.

Ospina is in the starting XI for Sunday's match against Stoke City.

Wojciech Szczesny is on the bench to face the Potters one match after getting caught smoking a cigarette in the locker room following a New Year's Day loss to Southampton. It's unclear how long Ospina will start, but he's got the best opportunity for a clean sheet of any of the Sunday matches.
