Arsene Wenger has provided the latest team news update ahead of tomorrow night’s Premier League encounter with West Ham.
The Gunners are looking to make up for the points they dropped on the road at Southampton on Sunday, and worries about Aaron Ramsey following the visit to St Mary’s were confirmed.
“Mustafi will not be back,” said Wenger. “We lost Ramsey against Southampton, he will not be available for tomorrow’s game.
“Everybody else, apart from the long-term injuries, everybody looks available. We’ll have some tests this morning to see how everyone has recovered.”
Asked to expand on the two main absentees, Wenger continued:
“Mustafi is out in training, running but playing yet,” he said. “The medical staff have decided he won’t be ready. For Newcastle at the weekend, perhaps.”
As for Ramsey, he continued, “Hamstring, a short period, it’s not a long one.”
Let’s hope not.
