Mustafi 'out for a while' after global injury

They are the second European team to win 10 of 10 matches in a qualification campaign after Spain, who took place to win in 2010.

The Gunners defender went off with what looked like a thigh injury and was helped from the pitch by medical staff.

Arsenal's Shkodran Mustafi is expected to be sidelined for some time after he had to limp out of Germany's 5-1 World Cup qualifying win over Azerbaijan on Sunday.

Shkodran Mustafi is yet another Premier League player coming back to his club injured after global break.

Arsenal return to Premier League action after the global break with a trip to Watford on Saturday 14 October.

Arsenal were dealt a huge blow during the global break as centre-back Shkodran Mustafi suffered a suspected muscle tear whilst playing for Germany. "A hamstring injury to a muscle tear, we have to wait for the exact diagnosis, but he'll probably be out for a long time".

Any enforced absence would be a potential headache for Arsène Wenger, with Laurent Koscielny having pulled out of France's squad last week with an achilles injury and Calum Chambers yet to feature this season due to a hip problem.

After missing two of the first three Premier League games Mustafi's return to Arsenal's starting XI has coincided with four clean sheets, including against Chelsea where the German successfully shut down Alvaro Morata.
