Szczesny to miss Montpellier clash

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny will miss his team's Champions League opener at Montpellier on Tuesday because of an ankle injury.

Szczesny sustained the problem in Arsenal's 6-1 win over Southampton on Saturday, and it is expected that he will be replaced between the posts by Vito Mannone.

The 22-year-old Szczesny started all 38 of Arsenal's league games last season, but has already missed two matches in the Premiership for the Gunners this term after failing a fitness test against Stoke City and sitting out his team's win over Liverpool.
