Munich:

Arsenal's Germany midfielder Mesut Ozil faces a few weeks on the sidelines after suffering a hamstring injury in their Champions League exit at Bayern Munich.


Ozil failed to come out for the second-half as Arsenal drew 1-1 at holders Bayern on Tuesday in the last 16, second-leg, as the Gunners bowed out 3-1 on aggregate.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger said Ozil will definitely miss their Premier League game at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

"Ozil has a hamstring injury and it looks quite serious," said Wenger.

"He will miss the Tottenham game for sure, he needs a scan. He's out for at least a few weeks."

The Munich injury caps a miserable two legs for Ozil, who failed to convert a crucial penalty in the 2-0 first-leg defeat in London and apologised to Gunners fans via Facebook. (Also read: Atletico Madrid in Champions League quarters for first time since 1997)
