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.

Manager Arsene Wenger confirmed Tuesday that Ospina (thigh) will be available for Friday's match against QPR.

Ospina's return to fitness will allow him to get back on the bench, as Wojciech Szczesny is expected to continue to start.

Ospina was not available for Arsenal's match against Liverpool on Sunday, as Emiliano Martinez was on the bench yet again as Wojciech Szczesny's backup.

Ospina has reportedly returned to full training, but manager Arsene Wenger was still not comfortable putting him in uniform. His next opportunity will come on Boxing Day against QPR, though Szczesny is still expected to start.

Ospina (thigh) is back in full training and he could be available for Sunday's match against Liverpool.

Despite the return to fitness, Ospina is still expected to back up Wojciech Szczesny.

Manager Arsene Wenger said Tuesday that Ospina is roughly a week away from returning from his thigh injury.

No. 1 keeper Wojiech Szczesny is currently sidelined with a hip injury, but because Ospina is out as well, Emiliano Martinez has started the last two games. Szczesny is not expected to be out for long, so it's unclear what role, if any, Ospina has in Premier League play when everyone is fit.
