Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is confident returning goalkeeper Jens Lehmann can help to get the best out of Manuel Almunia after the former Germany international officially returned to the club on Thursday night.

Veteran German Lehmann, 41, has rejoined his old club to aid the Gunners' injury crisis which has seen keepers Lukasz Fabianski, Wojciech Szczesny and Vito Mannone all sidelined.

The rolling monthly deal, until the end of the season, was completed in time for Lehmann to take his place on the substitutes' bench at West Brom on Saturday.
