Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is likely to be out for 10 to 12 weeks with a knee injury, the German FA has confirmed.

Ozil played the full 90 minutes in Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday but, having joined up with the German national squad, complained about a problem in his left knee and was sent for an MRI scan in Munich on Wednesday.

A statement on the DFB website read: “The MRI examination today at National Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt in Munich revealed a partial rupture of the outer band of the left knee joint.

“The treatment is conservative, with six weeks of immobilisation of the knee joint. Mesut Ozil is likely to be (out for) 10 to 12 weeks.”
