The Arsenal manager threatened to stop a press
conference amid continued questions regarding the
Colombian following his error in the Champions
League defeat to Olympiacos.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hit out at the
media following criticism of David Ospina after his
error in the 3-2 defeat to Olympiacos in the
Champions League in midweek.

Ospina fumbled an Olympiacos corner over his goal
line, leading members of the press to question why
Wenger had picked the Colombia international over
Gunners No.1 Petr Cech for a must-win game.

However, the Frenchman has now hit out those
who have criticised his team selection, insisting
that "nobody analysed the numbers".

"Look, stop that story, or we stop the press
conference," Wenger told reporters. "I think you
lack creativity in the media, and you follow a
bandwagon that is very, very boring.

"If you question Ospina, I question your knowledge
of football. People don't analyse the game well. I
heard one pundit criticise one thing, and everyone
followed that.

"It's depressing. Yes, the goalkeeper made a
mistake, but we could still have won the game."

Arsenal face Manchester United this weekend, with
the Gunners currently three points behind Louis
van Gaal's league leaders, and Wenger has
confirmed that he will be without Laurent Koscielny
at the Emirates.

"Laurent Koscielny is out for what looks like three
weeks," he added.

"Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta will also miss
out, but Francis Coquelin should be fit."
