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, with the £42.5m club-record signing going to see Germany national team doctor Hans Muller Wohlfahrt at the break for treatment.

The north London club’s manager Arsene Wenger said Ozil will definitely miss their Premier League game with arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

“Ozil has a hamstring injury and it looks quite serious,” confirmed Wenger after the full-time whistle.

“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.

He is one of Germany’s key players, with Joachim Loew’s side set to launch their World Cup campaign against Portugal on June 16.
