London: Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is facing “at least a few weeks” out after injuring his hamstring in Tuesday’s Champions League exit at Bayern Munich.
The 25-year-old was withdrawn at half-time in Arsenal’s 1-1 draw in Munich, which saw them lose 3-1 on aggregate.
Ozil, who signed for the Gunners from Real Madrid for £42.4million, will have a scan on Wednesday.
Boss Arsene Wenger said the German would definitely miss Sunday’s derby at Tottenham in the Premier League.
Bayern progressed to the quarter-finals of the competition, leaving Arsenal with just two more chances to end their nine-year trophy drought this season.
The Gunners are seven points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea and will play Wigan in an FA Cup semi-final.
Arsenal will be hoping Ozil’s injury is not too serious, having already lost England midfielder Jack Wilshere for at least six weeks with a foot injury.
“We have to make a scan tomorrow to see how bad it is but he is out for at least a few weeks,” said Wenger.
