The next game up for Arsenal in this tough period we find ourselves in looks a little easier than the previous three against Liverpool, Stoke City and Chelsea. But even though our FA cup opponents Burnley are one division below the Gunners, they are in very good form.
Arsene Wenger is sure to have one eye on the Premier League match with Southampton three days later and so the Frenchman is sure to rotate quite a few of his first team stars, including handing a rare start to the second choice keeper David Ospina who The Sun reports that the boss has turned down an offer for from the Turkish club Besiktas.
The thing is though, should a second string Arsenal get knocked out of the FA cup on Saturday, how many more chances is the Colombian international going to get this season ahead of Petr Cech. Besiktas have offered a loan deal but surely we could push them for close to the £3 million we paid for him and bring Szczesny back from his loan spell in Serie A with Roma.
Is it right for Wenger to keep Ospina against his will when we have Szczesny who wants to be here?
