David Ospina has a higher win ratio that any other player in Premier League history.

The Colombian goalkeeper has played his part in a sensational run of form for Arsenal since replacing former No 1 Wojciech Szczesny.

Arsene Wenger's long-time favourite between the sticks was caught smoking in the changing rooms following a defeat to Southampton on New Year's Day. Coupled with some patchy form, the Poland international was dropped in favour of summer arrival Ospina and the Gunners haven't looked back.

Ospina has played his role in Arsenal winning 11 of their 12 Premier League games since, with six clean sheets among them. It means he has a win percentage of 92 per cent. No other player in the history of the Premier League who has played more than 10 games has a higher percentage.

Whilst the sample size may be small, the statistic will add weight to the argument that Ospina is the long-term No 1 at Arsenal.
