If going out of the Champions League isn’t bad enough, it looks like we’ve lost record signing Mesut Ozil for ‘a few weeks’.

The German was substituted at half time during Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich after feeling a tight hamstring.

He immediately saw German specialist Müller-Wohlfahrt who has reported that the injury is ‘quite bad’ with Arsene Wenger telling reporters that the playmaker is certain to miss ‘a few weeks’.
