Arsenal lose Lehmann to injury

Arsenal FC goalkeeper Jens Lehmann will miss the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round tie against AC Sparta Praha because of an achilles injury.
Arsenal FC goalkeeper Jens Lehmann will miss the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round tie against AC Sparta Praha on 29 August because of an achilles injury.

Cost of victory
Lehmann aggravated a recurring injury during Germany's 2-1 win in England on Wednesday and will be replaced by Manuel Almunia in the Arsenal lineup.

'Two weeks or more'
Gunners boss Arsène Wenger said: "Jens is out and he will miss two weeks, maybe more. He is going to see a specialist in Germany. He has had this injury before but it has got much worse." Lehmann must also be considered a fitness doubt for Germany's next international, the UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifier in Wales on 8 September. Arsenal lead Czech club Sparta by 2-0 going into next week's second leg in London.
