Wenger on his goalkeeping choice for Ostersund and Manchester City

Ospina will play against Ostersund. And on Sunday. I have two world class goalkeepers

Ozil has been sick and he will not be involved [against Ostersund]. I expect him to be ok for Sunday. Mkhitaryan will play [on Thursday]

I always look to find a team that will win a game. This competition is important to us. It’s a good opportunity for the players. There is a fight for places

Wenger on Pierre-Emierick Aubameyang being cup-tied in Europe
