The German suffered condemnation from certain sections of the media for his performance in the Allianz Arena before he was substituted at half-time.

Ozil has now explained his muted performance on his Facebook page.

He writes: 'Dear friends, now it's clear: during the #ucl match against #FCBayern I suffered a muscle injury in the second minute. I tried to give my best and played until the end of the first half. Rest assured that I'll be back even stronger!'

Speaking ahead of Sunday's north London derby with Tottenham, manager Arsene Wenger told arsenal.com: "He's out. I don't know for how long but it is a hamstring injury. There are scans going on."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
