Arsenal Ace Set To Miss Tottenham Showdown After Suffering Fresh Injury
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is set to be ruled out for at least a month with a hamstring injury meaning he’ll miss the showdown with Tottenham next month
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is set to be ruled out for at least a month with a hamstring injury meaning he’ll miss the crunch clash with Tottenham next month, according to the Daily Mail.
Ramsey was forced off early in the second half during the Gunners impressive 2-0 victory over Bayern Munich on Tuesday night after pulling up clutching the back of his right leg.
The midfielder limped from the field as he was replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the 57th minute and went straight down the tunnel with the clubs physio.
Arsene Wenger confirmed after the match that Ramsey had suffered a serious hamstring injury but refused to commit to any time-frame over his possible return.
However, the Daily Mail claim that while the swelling was too severe for Ramsey to undergo scans yesterday, the club fear he will be on the sidelines for at least a month meaning he’ll be out until after the next upcoming international break.
Wenger has already ruled the Welshman out of Arsenal’s next two games against Everton and Sheffield Wednesday but if he was to miss a month Ramsey would also sit out the subsequent games against Swansea City and Bayern Munich.
The midfielder would also miss the huge North London derby on November 8th when Arsenal host Tottenham at the Emirates before the player’s head of to link-up with their countries for the latest international’s.
If Ramsey’s recovery goes well, he could then make his return when Arsenal travel to the Hawthorns to take on West Brom on November 21st after the international break.
This is the latest hamstring injured suffered by Ramsey so I expect Arsenal will play it safe and not rush him back too soon. The 24-year-old suffered three separate hamstring problems last season that kept him out for between three-to-five weeks and it appears he’s set for a similar spell on the sidelines.
If Ramsey is confirmed as being out for a month it will come as a major blow to Arsene Wenger as his side are in excellent form having beaten Manchester United, Watford and Bayern Munich in recent weeks.
The French boss is already without the injured Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck and Tomas Rosicky so Ramsey’s absence further limits his options in midfield and attack – although it does open the door for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to stake his claim for a regular starting spot.
