Mesut Ozil will miss Sunday’s visit to White Hart Lane through a hamstring injury.

The German international limped off during the break in the 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich as Tomas Rosicky took his place in the second half.

When asked about the fitness of Ozil on Tuesday night, Arsene Wenger confirmed the Gunners’ record signing is set for a spell on the sidelines.
