Arsenal are sweating on the fitness of star playmaker Mesut Ozil after he limped out of Germany's World Cup qualifier against Sweden on Tuesday night.

The 25-year old was replaced by Julian Draxler in the 82nd minute of Die Mannschaft's 5-3 victory over the Swedes in Solna after picking up a knock which leaves him in doubt for this weekend's Premier League meeting with Norwich City.

Ozil scored Germany's first goal ion the stroke of half-time to make it 2-1 after Sweden had taken an early two-goal lead through Tobias Hysen and Alex Kacaniklic.

The former Real Madrid ace then assisted on Mario Gotze's 53rd minute leveller before a second-half hat-trick from Chelsea's Andre Schurrle gave the Germans the ascendency despite Hysen netting again for Sweden with 20 minutes remaining.
