It’s being reported today that manager Arsene Wenger will honour his Cup promise to David Ospina when we face Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

Whether this comes as a shock to anyone with Ospina regularly featuring this year in Cup competitions is down to them, but all the reports angle that it’s a shock decision to have made given how our season ended and the magnitude of what the FA Cup and a win would mean to us this season.

Petr Cech was between the sticks for the Quarter and Semi Final ties so some would certainly have expected him to continue for the final and it’s fair to say that Ospina’s 13 appearances this campaign have split opinions – especially given his involvement in the ten two aggregate hammering by Bayern Munich.

On to the final to see what Wenger does actually decide to do.
