Arsenal star Mesut Ozil limped off injured during Germany's thrilling 5-3 victory over Sweden in World Cup qualifying, raising doubts over whether he will be fit for Premier League action this weekend.

The midfielder picked up the knock with less than ten minutes and was replaced by Julian Draxler.

He immediately went down the tunnel for treatment -- a concern for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger ahead of the Gunners’ match against Norwich at the Emirates on Saturday.

It was a highly eventful game in Solna, with Sweden racing into a two-goal lead before Ozil started Germany's fightback and then provided an assist for Mario Goetze's equaliser. Chelsea striker Andre Schuerrle scored all three of Germany's other goals.
