Arsenal have been left sweating on the fitness of Shkodran Mustafi after the Germany international pulled up sharply during the win over Azerbaijan.
The big centre-back was seen clutching the front of his thigh as he fell to the ground after breaking into a sprint. Speaking after the 5-1 victory, manager Joachim Loew said that he expects Mustafi to be out "for a long time" due to the injury - a suspected quadriceps strain: "It does not look good. It is some muscle tear or some muscle fibre tear." The 25-year-old will be assessed fully on his return to London, but despite his indifferent start to the season, the news will come as a huge blow to Arsène Wenger with Laurent Koscielny and Calum Chambers on the sidelines. Koscielny is managing an ongoing Achilles issue and is hoping to be available this weekend, although he has not yet re-joined the group in training. Meanwhile, Chambers has not played since suffering a groin injury against Doncaster in the League Cup last month. Oct 9 - 8:36 AM
