David Ospina says he feels “really tranquil” despite a losing start to his Arsenal career.

The Colombia international made his first Gunners start as Arsene Wenger’s side suffered a 2-1 loss to Southampton in the third round of the Capital One Cup.

And Ospina, who moved to Arsenal from Nice in the summer transfer window, admitted he was disappointed after missing out on potential silverware this season.

“I’m really happy to make my debut and play my first game with Arsenal,” Ospina told Arsenal’s website.

“Unfortunately we didn’t win and the result went against us but I just want to keep working. I’m really tranquil because I did my best.

“The second [Southampton goal] was superb and Clyne is a really skilful player. There were a lot of people in the box and when I saw the ball, it moved and I didn’t have time to react.

“We would liked to have kept going in the cup. It was one of our aims and the result was not very good for us. Everyone was sad afterwards because we want to win more titles for Arsenal but I will keep working.

“I felt really happy when I went onto the pitch because people were supporting me a lot. I’m learning all the time. The style in England is different because they play really quickly and with a lot of aerial balls.

“Little by little, I’m learning English too. I’m taking classes and some of my team-mates speak French. There is a mix of languages spoken so little by little, I understand them better.”
