Joseph ZuckerFeatured ColumnistOctober 15, 2013

Arsenal supporters got about the worst news possible, as Mesut Ozil limped off in Germany's World Cup qualifier.

The midfielder was substituted in the 82nd minute and immediately went back to the dressing room rather than the bench, per Swiss Ramble on Twitter:

Ozil substituted. Hate to say it, but he walked straight to the dressing room with a slight limp.

Ozil will face a fitness test to determine his availability for Arsenal's match vs. Norwich.
