Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Aaron Ramsey and David Ospina will both be sidelined until after the next international break.
The Welsh midfielder picked up a hamstring problem in Tuesday night’s win over Bayern Munich and looks set for a month out.
“Ramsey had a scan today but he’s out,” Wenger told Arsenal Player on Thursday.
“I believe he will be out until after the next international break. With the [last] international break, the fact that he played against Andorra [on an artificial pitch] certainly cost Bale and him as well.”
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looks the most likely candidate to fill in on the right with Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky unavailable until early 2016.
All going to plan Ramsey should be available for the trip to West Brom on 21 November; he’ll miss four games including the trip to Munich and the North London derby.
Wenger also touched on the absence of David Ospina revealing, “He is out for our next game and certainly until the next international break.”
We’re not yet sure of the specifics of Ospina’s injury, only that he appears to have picked it up while on international duty with Colombia. With Emi Martinez and Wojciech Szczesny on loan it opens the door for Matt Macey to make his Gunners debut in goal against Sheffield Wednesday next week.
