Premier league side Arsenal face a defensive crisis with German defender Shkodran Mustafi ruled out for four to six weeks, with Laurent Koscielny and Sead Kolasinac doubtful for their clash with Watford this weekend, according to a report on The Independent.

The German global limped off with a hamstring problem during their World Cup qualifier win over Azerbaijan.

Wenger confirmed in his press conference on Thursday morning that Mustafi would miss around 4-6 weeks, which wasn't as bad as first feared, but still means that it is unlikely that he will feature in any of Arsenal's games before the next global break.

Wenger gave a prognosis of four to six weeks, meaning that Mustafi could return after the next worldwide break, but the Gunners boss will be keen to ensure that Mustafi is available for the Christmas period.

"I didn't expect him to play and Germany had already qualified".

Wenger said contract talks with German worldwide Ozil, who is in the final year of his deal, were progressing well.
