Ospina made two saves in Arsenal's scoreless draw with Chelsea on Sunday.

Playing without Diego Costa (hamstring) and Loic Remy (calf), which Didier Drogba (ankle) began the match on the bench, Chelsea was clearly playing for a scoreless draw and got just that. The good news for Ospina's fantasy owners is that he got a clean sheet too, though it kept him from any kind of win bonus. Up next is another solid clean-sheet opportunity when Arsenal travel to KC Stadium to take on Hull City.

Ospina was beaten by a 76th-minute penalty by Jordan Henderson but didn't allow any other goals during Arsenal's 4-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

Ospina, who made only one save, was solid throughout the match and continues his stronghold on the starting job at the Emirates. Up next is a road match against Burnley next Saturday.

Ospina did not make a save en route to a clean sheet victory over Monaco on Wednesday.

Monaco were more than happy to sit back after building a lead in the first leg and rarely ventured forward to threaten the Arsenal goal. Ospina and Arsenal next play this weekend against Newcastle in the Premier League.

Ospina posted his fifth clean sheet through nine starts by holding West Ham scoreless in Arsenal's 3-0 win Saturday.

Ospina was needed for just one save to preserve Arsenal's clean sheet performance. Overall, the Colombian has done decent for himself since taking the Gunners' starting spot in goal, which has kept Wojciech Szczesny at bay and boosted Ospina's fantasy stock to boot.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
