[VOTE] Who Would You Rather See In Goal – Almunia or Lehmann?
Manuel Almunia suffered a knee injury in the warm up before Arsenal’s crucial game against Blackpool yesterday, and as a result, the 41 year-old German goalkeeper Jens Lehmann was played in Arsenal’s goal. It was his first start since rejoining Arsenal as he came out of retirement to be back up to Almunia at the club, and he wasn’t troubled too much in a game largely dominated by the Gunners.
Lehmann could have been sent off in the build up to Blackpool’s first and only goal in the game in which he dived down to trip up DJ Campbell. A goal was scored anyway and Lee Mason played the advantage to Blackpool, preventing a red card being shown or a penalty given.
It is, as yet unclear as to how serious Almunia’s injury is, but in the vital final few games, the question is, if Szczesny isn’t fit enough to face Liverpool next weekend, who would Arsenal fans rather have in goal, Manuel Almunia or Jens Lehmann?
