It is still not absolutely certain that either Aaron Ramsey or Mesut Ozil will be fit enough to start the big Premier League clash with Man City at the Emirates stadium on Saturday, but the chances are looking a lot bigger than they were yesterday.
And if both Arsenal midfielders or either one is not quite ready for that game, they probably will be available for the Champions League trip to face Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The Germany international who missed both of his country’s games during the break actually trained as normal with his Arsenal team mates yesterday, so unless Arsene Wenger is being super careful with him or saving him for Dortmund, he should start against Citeh.
And a Daily Star report has revealed that Ramsey has spoken about his injury and the fact that it is not serious. Although he still does not know for sure that he will be able to face the BPL champions, the Welshman is hopeful and understandably keen to.
Rambo said, “I’ll be alright – the pitch was very hard. There’s no give in it so I rolled my ankle a bit.
“Hopefully it will be nothing and I’ll be available for Saturday.
“These are the games you want to play in and I’m looking forward to it.”
Arsenal have a really tough month of fixtures ahead of us, with the next two vital games followed by three Premier League games in a week, away to Aston Villa and at home to Southampton and Tottenham. Then it is Galatasaray at home and Chelsea away, so the last thing we need is for key players to be missing and it might need a bit of rotation on the part of the boss.
How well do you expect Arsenal to get through these fixtures?
