Jens Lehmann insists he'll remain as Arsenal's No1 - despite two howlers in a week.

"I committed two mistakes in three games, I admit that," Lehmann said. "The first mistake against Fulham was one of the first kicks of the season. I sort of kicked the ball at myself and it went directly in.

"The one I committed on Sunday had never happened in my life either in training or in a game. There was a reason why I didn't catch the ball but I really don't want to explain why - mostly because there are so many English journalists about, I know them by their faces and I don't want to give anything away."

Speaking at the German team's hotel, Lehmann added: "I don't really have any doubts in my ability as a keeper. The mistakes I made were so simple that I'm not really that concerned [about losing my place]."
