Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski will miss Sunday's North London derby with Tottenham after suffering a hamstring injury in the Champions League qualifying defeat of Fenerbahce.

The Germany international is expected to be out for three weeks after pulling up in the opening minute of the second half of the 2-0 second leg win over the Turkish side which completed a 5-0 aggregate triumph.

Manager Arsene Wenger said: "We paid a heavy price on the injury front because we lost Podolski. Podolski's definitely out for 21 days."
