As I’m sure you are aware our Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been ruled out for an expected month long period, with a hamstring injury he sustained in the opening fixture of the new premier league season.
Ramsey was hauled off the pitch during the second half of Arsenal’s opener against Liverpool, a match that the Gunners eventually lost 4-3. Ramsey dropped to the ground and it immediately flashed up that given his injury concerns from the past, that a bit of magic spray wasn’t going to cut it. Ramsey was taken off before Iwobi joined him on the treatment table minutes later.
Ramsey’s injury therefore means that the Gunners are now lacking yet another influential player on the pitch, although many will agree that the Welshman didn’t exactly put in a match winning performance. He will probably miss the whole of September, meaning he misses games against Leicester, Watford, and probably miss the first international break, and knowing Arsenal’s injury record he will probably be out for longer than that.
Aaron Ramsey will be out until after the first international break with the hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday’s 4-3 defeat against Liverpool.
It means that he will definitely miss Saturday’s match against Leicester City but also then the game against Watford as well as Wales’s first World Cup qualifier against Moldova on Sept 5. It is then hoped that he could be in contention to return for Arsenal’s home game against Southampton on Sept 10.
Ramsey had to be substituted in the 61st minute of the Liverpool match with the score still 3-1 shortly after Alex Iwobi had also gone off with a thigh strain that is still being assessed. From The Telegraph
Ramsey therefore joins Iwobi, Gabriel, Mertesacker, Welbeck and Jenkinson on the treatment table, whilst Wilshere, Ozil, Giroud and Koscielny are all hopefully returning to full fitness.
