The Arsenal and Wales international star has not kicked a ball in anger since the first game of the Premier League season, when he picked up the hamstring injury in our disappointing defeat to Liverpool. He is set to miss the latest games for Wales over the next two weeks, with Chris Coleman having another go at Arsenal and Arsene Wenger for it.
But the prognosis is good after that and according to the injury table on physioroom.com he will be back in contention to play for the Gunners when domestic football returns after the international break. The big question is, though, how will he get into the team?
If Arsenal were struggling, especially in Ramsey’s preferred central role, then you would expect the boss to bring Ramsey back in straight away, but we are not. Not only is the side in good form, with five EPL wins in a row, the player currently occupying the Ramsey role is one of our top performers this season.
In fact the stats website Squawka.com has revealed a stunning statistic from the win at Burnley on Sunday, with Santi Cazorla registering an unbelievable passing success rate of over 98 percent. That was from a player who completed the whole 90 minutes against a very physical and hard working side and not just from a sub who came on against tired legs.
In fact the Spaniard completed over 100 passes during the match and only two did not find their target. When you consider that he is not the deeper lying midfielder but one trying to create then it makes it all the more impressive and now that he is also the club’s designated penalty taker and has two goals already this season, how on Earth is Ramsey going to get his place back?
