Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Aaron Ramsey will be out of action for ‘weeks’ after the midfielder suffered an injury setback in training earlier this week.
Despite telling the media he hoped it was short-term after the 2-2 draw with Southampton on Tuesday night, the Frenchman has admitted the Welsh Jesus is going to be out for a prolonged period.
“He had a setback and it doesn’t look too good,” he said. “It is matter of some weeks for him.”
As we reported on Tuesday night, the initial prognosis led to fears it could be as much as 6 weeks, but let’s hope he can recover more quickly than that as the games pile up.
However, there’s better news regarding Jack Wilshere who should be fit for the trip to Anfield next weekend, while Tomas Rosicky returns to the squad for Sunday’s game against Crystal Palace.
The club also confirmed that Mathieu Flamini will only miss 3 games through suspension, meaning he’ll be back for the FA Cup clash with Liverpool at the Emirates on February 16th.
That’s one we’re glad we got wrong!
