Germany-australia
Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski is set to miss Sunday’s north London derby against Tottenham after suffering a hamstring injury in the Gunners’ Champions League qualifying win over Fenerbahce. The Germany international is expected to be out for three weeks after pulling up early in the second half of the 2-0 victory over the Turkish side which ensured the club continue their 16-year run in Europe’s top competition. Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey who scored both goals in the game also came off with a groin problem while injury-prone England star Jack Wilshire picked up a niggle after a series of crashing challenges. With injuries already to Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is clearly concerned over the status of his key players. "We paid a heavy price on the injury front because we lost Podolski he’s definitely out for 21 days” said the Gunners boss. "I don't know how bad Ramsey is. I don't know how Wilshere responds. We have to check that tomorrow morning. "The two tackles on Wilshere were disappointing but he looks all right. "Jack should be all right for Sunday. I'm hopeful on Aaron as well. "I took him off with three or four minutes to go but I don't know how bad it is. He wanted to stay on."
