Arsenal boss Wenger fears lengthy absence for Mustafi

Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi will be sidelined for up to six weeks with a hamstring injury.

Germany secured their place in Russian Federation after a 3-1 victory away to Northern Ireland but the reigning world champions still had to face Azerbaijan at the Fritz-Walter-Stadion on Sunday evening.

"I don't think he will be available until the next worldwide break".

The manager sounded more optimistic about Koscielny, who was not called up by France for their qualifiers due to a strained Achilles, saying that the defender had trained on Thursday and could step in for Mustafi.

"Koscielny has a definite final test tomorrow but at the moment he is not available. But he trained on his own and the first signs are positive, so we chose to give him a test tomorrow", he added. The Bosnian has returned from global duty with a minor hip problem - he's set to be tested today.

Mustafi suffered a muscle tear in his thigh while playing for Germany during the recent worldwide break and Wenger said he will be out for at least four weeks. Wenger's men have started to build a run of form and while we expect the Hornets to have a certain amount of success, Arsenal should have enough to come through in relatively comfortable fashion.

"I have concerns about my defence because of the injuries, and I need to think about that".

There have been two or fewer goals scored in each of Arsenal's last three league games, and another dabblebet enhanced price of 9/2 (5.5) up from 15/4 (3.75) on Arsenal to win the game with under 2.5 strikes is another very appealing option. "I will decide that tomorrow".

However Wenger had a more positive update on the future of Ozil with the German's contract also set to run out next summer, saying that he was hopeful the midfielder would remain at the club beyond this season.

"That is my understanding (that he wants to stay)".

Arsenal have bounced back from their 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool in late August to secure three wins and one draw from their last four league games.

Arsenal are fifth on 13 points from seven games.
