Arsenal fans perplexed by Arsene Wenger's selection of David Ospina for PSG clash

The Colombia goalkeeper has been selected ahead of Petr Cech as Arsenal prepare to take on Paris Saint-Germain in the Parc des Princes at 7.45pm this evening.

Arsene Wenger named this XI to play PSG in Champions League Group A tonight:

There is no place for strikers Olivier Giroud or Lucas Perez as Alexis Sanchez leads the Arsenal line.

Alex Iwobi is afforded a start as Theo Walcott fails to make the squad while Francis Coquelin keeps his place ahead of Granit Xhaka.

Most surprisingly, Ospina begins in goal as Cech drops to the bench.

The decision has caused bemusement among Arsenal supporters, particularly considering the Colombian's last start in the competition when he gifted Olympiakos a goal after spilling a corner over his own line.

The 3-2 loss left the Gunners' qualification hopes hanging by a thread in the 2015/16 campaign, and the fans have not forgotten:

Expect a Twitter storm to rage if Ospina happens to make a mistake this evening.
