Ramsey: Injured again

Arsenal will look to close the gap on Premier League leaders Leicester City when we take on West Ham at Upton Park on Saturday lunchtime.

Ahead of the game, Arsene Wenger has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference and has given reporters a team news and injury update.

The boss was pleased to confirm a double injury boost with the news that Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini are set to return to the squad after recovering from recent injuries.

Ramsey has been on the sidelines since being forced off with a thigh injury during our 4-0 FA Cup replay victory over Hull City at the KC Stadium at the start of March.

However, it looks like the Welsh international is now on the verge of making his comeback as Wenger has revealed the midfielder could return against West Ham after enjoying a good training session on Wednesday.

Flamini could join Ramsey in the squad at Upton Park as Wenger also revealed that the midfielder has been passed fit after recovering from a hamstring injury that he picked up during our 3-1 defeat to Barcelona last month.

I expect a place on the bench is the best Flamini can hope for this weekend but it will be interesting to see if Ramsey gets an immediate recall if he’s passed fit to face the Hammers.

Mohamed Elneny has excelled alongside Francis Coquelin in them middle of the park during Ramsey’s absence and we look to have a real balance in midfield now, so it would be a big call to split them up by recalling Rambo.

The 25-year-old could also have trouble regaining his place on the wing as Alex Iwobi has been outstanding in recent weeks so I think we might see Arsene stick with the same midfield and attack that started against Watford last weekend, even if Ramsey returns.

    To the squad … OK ….. but hopefully not to the team ! Our disastrous drop in form coincided not only with Sanchez not being rested by Wenger but with Cazorla and Coq being replaced by Ramsey and Flamini in central midfield.
