The Germany midfielder was substituted at half-time of Tuesday night's Champions League last-16 second-leg tie at the Allianz Arena and had already been ruled out of Sunday's derby with Tottenham.

"We lose Ozil, who has been injured for Sunday, I don't know how long he will be out but it looks a minimum of three weeks," Wenger said on Friday. 

"When the minimum is three, (then) the maximum is six. I am not specialist enough to know, it is a grade two hamstring (tear), so let's say four weeks."

Ozil's absence is a blow following the news that Aaron Ramsey's return from a thigh injury has been delayed, with Jack Wilshere also sidelined with a broken foot suffered on England duty.

Sweden international Kim Kallstrom could be available for his debut at White Hart Lane debut after signing on loan from Spartak Moscow with a back injury while full-back Nacho Monreal is also available again.

Wenger added: "It is of course a blow, but I am confident we have the quality to deal without him (Ozil). We have many creative players who can take over to produce quality performances."

suspect the review will conclude that Iago Aspas should never have been loaned out. Two hat-tricks in two Copa Del Rey games. One might say he has really turned a corner.
