JEEPERS-KEEPERS, WENGER CAN'T WIN.

Byline: ADRIAN KAJUMBA

ARSENE WENGER believes he cannot win whichever Arsenal goalkeeper he picks.

He kept faith with David Ospina at Upton Park despite Petr Cech being fully fit after a calf injury and wanting to play.

Having initially suggested he rated them equally, Wenger insisted Cech was his No.1.

But he came to the defence of Colombia international Ospina (left with Gabriel) , who looked shaky at times against West Ham and conceded three goals.

Wenger said: "I have a No.1 but he has just come back from injury.

"He was back one week training and I decided to keep Ospina in.

"I don't think you can blame Ospina, he made some great saves goalkeeper saves. He's a great goalkeeper. But Cech is No.1.

"Barcelona play with a South American goalkeeper, Real Madrid play with a South American goalkeeper and Ospina was named goalkeeper No.1 in the last Copa America. Ospina is a great goalkeeper as is Petr Cech. So I say no matter what I decide I'm right and no matter what I decide I'm wrong."
