Arsenal’s romance with injury seems not ready to stop. New record signing Mesut Ozil could be the next gunner to spend time on the treatment table. Ozil who has been in superb form for the gunners ever since he joined on the last day of the summer transfer window scored one of Germany’s 5 goals against Sweden in an interesting 5-3 win but 8 minutes to the end of the match, he was pulled off and limped straight to the dressing room.
Although hours later, Bild reported that the injury was a bruised ankle and not so serious but it looks like it is serious enough to rule him out of Arsenal’s clash against Norwich this weekend. With Arsenal already suffering too much injuries ( Podolski, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Diaby, Walcott all out with various degrees of injury and the likes of Arteta, Vermaelen and Cazorla are only just returning ) lately, Mesut Ozil’s injury can only give Wenger a cause for concern especially when you consider the type of form he has been on for both Arsenal and German.
