Shkodran Mustafi: Arsenal defender out for three weeks with hamstring injury
10th December 2016
http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/38277476

Arsenal centre-back Shkodran Mustafi will be out for at least three weeks after injuring a hamstring during his side's 3-1 win over Stoke. The German, 24, was forced off after 25 minutes at Emirates Stadium. "It's a bad one. The minimum is 21 days," said Gunners boss Arsene Wenger of Mustafi's expected absence. Arsenal have three games in that period, facing Everton away on Tuesday, Manchester City away on 18 December, and hosting West Brom on 26 December. Mustafi joined Arsenal from Valencia in August for a fee in excess of £32m. The victory over Stoke took Wenger's men top of the Premier League on goals scored over Chelsea, who face West Brom on Sunday at 12:00 GMT. Charlie Adam's penalty gave the visitors the lead before Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and substitute Alex Iwobi made it 12 goals in three games for Arsenal.

So that will be the usual 3 weeks which then turns into 3 months.

Just watched Mustafi limp off against Azerbaijan with what looked like a thigh injury. Bloody internationals.

Yup, Löw said in a post match interview that Mustafi has torned his hamstring.

Will be interesting to see whether Wenger trusts Holding ahead of Mertesacker.

Looked more like his quad or nearer the groin, but he would know better than me. From an Arsenal perspective it's really annoying, as Germany had qualified, were playing someone a bit crap and could have tried out new talent. I get that they can pick whomever the hell they want but still shit luck, especially with Koscielny struggling.

Sky Sports report that Mustafi is out for up to six weeks with hamstring injury.

We were lucky with international breaks recently - did anybody really appreciate that, by the way? - so I guess we were due one.
