Wenger May Bench Cech in FA Cup Final



Following a knock suffered in the last training leading to Saturday’s FA Cup final match, Petr Cech is set to be dropped from Arsenal’s clash against Chelsea.
Sports Village Square gathered from International Business Times that Colombia’s David Ospina, who had expressed desire to leave Arsenal this summer, may take his place.
It was also gathered that it was a way to give Ospina one more chance to reconsider his proposed move.
The 28-year old Ospina was part of Arsenal’s Champions League run where they were smashed by Bayern Munich and also started in the first three rounds of the FA Cup, but missed the last two rounds through injury and was replaced by Cech.
Wenger has previously indicated that he is yet to make a decision on who to start in goal for the final with the Czech Republic international being in brilliant form over the last few weeks.
