Why Always Arsenal? Another Star Joins the Injury List.

Why do we get so unfortunate at this time of the season. At a time when we are wishing almost half our team speedy recoveries from fitness issues, more keep lengthening the list on every match day.

Our German midfielder is the latest to have embarked on the same journey with Theo, Jack and many others. Mesut Ozil limped off in Arsenal's last game at the Allianz Arena after a hamstring pull to be replaced by Tomas Rosicky. Initial tests by the club's medical team showed he would be out for 4-6 weeks. Further scans were conducted on Wednesday night at a London health facility and the outcome should be known today.

Ozil Out for 6 Weeks

He will definitely be out of Sunday's North-London derby at the White Hart lane. Also, the former Real Madrid play-maker who joined the Gunners for a fee of £42 million last summer has a high chance of missing Premier League games against Chelsea, Swansea City and Manchester City. The greatest fear right now is that he might not be available for his side's FA Cup semi-final encounter with Wigan at the Wembley Stadium come 12th April.

Despite being under fire due to his recent poor form, Arsene Wenger had assured the 25-year old he is still in his future plans and advised him not to keep dwelling in his past misfortune (1st leg penalty miss against Bayern). Both had a one-on-one chat at London Colney before flying to Germany for the return leg.

Speedy recovery MesutOzil11. Our thoughts are with you. Come back stronger for us.
