EPL By: Ambrose Udeme | 06/02/2018

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is likely to miss Saturday's North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley - his first Premier League match miss of the season.

Cech was forced off in the second-half of the 5-1 win against Everton after colliding awkwardly with an Everton player.

And while manager Arsene Wenger hoped that it was only a kick to the calf, the expectation is that he will not be recovered for Saturday, according to the Telegraph.

His absence would mean Colmobia's David Ospina coming back into the team after playing almost exclusively in the cup competitions since Cech’s arrival from Chelsea in 2015.

Ospina has helped Arsenal reach the League Cup final and also progress to the knockout phase of the Europa League this season.
