Ospina made four saves while conceding three goals in Saturday's 3-3 draw with West Ham.

Surprisingly selected over the now-fit Petr Cech, Ospina and the Arsenal defense came undone in the ten minutes either side of halftime, conceding three times to Andy Carroll. Ospina looked uncomfortable coming off his line all afternoon and Carroll's size was problematic throughout. Cech will likely be the one getting the starts moving forward barring a setback with his hamstring.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ospina made two saves while keeping a clean sheet in Saturday's 4-0 victory over Watford.

Ospina has acquitted himself well in Petr Cech's absence, keeping consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League. Arsenal looked the dominant side throughout and Ospina was there to make sure nothing slipped through the cracks. With Cech's return coming sooner rather than later, it's unclear what Ospina's role will be moving forward as they're out of all other competitions; however, he's shown over the past month that he's more than capable of stepping up if need be.

Ospina made two saves while keeping a clean sheet in Saturday's 2-0 victory over Everton.

Ospina was knocked around a bit, but with Petr Cech sidelined, the Colombian needed to play the full 90 and made the most of his second Premier League start of the season, keeping his first clean sheet after a very strong performance against Spurs last week. Ospina will get a chance to heal up over the international break before returning against Watford on April 2.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ospina made nine saves while conceding twice in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

Making his first Premier League appearance since the season finale last season against West Brom, Ospina acquitted himself phenomenally. This was a far cry from the performance he turned in against Olympiakos when he conceded three increasingly poor goals. With Petr Cech on the sidelines for the next few matches, it will be on the undersized Colombian to continue coming up big as the next few fixtures could all be cup ties—Hull City in a fifth round FA Cup replay, followed by a potential meeting with Watford in the quarterfinals and then a meeting with Barcelona at Camp Nou.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ospina could miss Wednesday's match against Liverpool because of a muscular injury, manager Arsene Wenger said Monday.

Ospina was held out of Saturday's FA Cup match against Sunderland, and while his absence would be a hit to Arsenal's depth, he was unlikely to get the start anyway, with Petr Cech fully fit.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
