Arsene Wenger says that he’s most concerned about the injury picked up by Aaron Ramsey in the 4-0 win over Hull City this evening.
The Gunners lost Per Mertesacker, Gabriel and the Welshman as they progressed the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
The BFG should be fine with what Wenger called a ‘little concussion’ after he clashed heads with Nick Powell in the first half. His swollen eye meant he had to leave the field.
In the second half, Gabriel had to come off with the manager saying he looks ‘all right’ but when Ramsey replaced him, he did so cold, without much, if any, warm up.
He has suffered a thigh injury, something of a recurring issue for him, and with Wenger saying it was the ‘most serious’ of the three we’ll have to wait and see how long he’s going to miss.
Chances are he won’t be be available for the trip to Barcelona, but let’s hope not much more than that.
