Mesut Ozil looks to have kicked his final ball of the domestic season after picking up a back injury.
Ozil was lambasted by former Arsenal defender Martin Keown following his poor performance in Madrid on Thursday and suggested the Germany international wouldn’t feature in any of the remaining matches: "Somebody needed to grab him a long time ago, to give him a shake and say, 'We're trying to get the ball to you. We are working for you, but you're not working for us.' I bet he doesn't play again this season. He'll have some emotional breakdown and won't be able to play at the weekend. I don't know how many illnesses he's had this season, but the fella is not kidding me." And so it proved, as Arsène Wenger confirmed prior to kick-off on Sunday that Ozil had suffered "a recurrence of his back problem," ruling him out the final three matches. "How long is he out, I don't know. I don't think he'll be available for the rest of the season." May 6 - 5:23 PM
