Arsene Wenger: Injury update on Ramsey, Welbeck and Debuchy


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed striker Danny Welbeck will miss Sunday's key game against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Englishman joins defender Mathieu Debuchy and attacking midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the sidelines as the Gunners will be hoping to bounce back from Monday's defeat against Swansea City.

All are expected to be fit for the FA Cup final against Aston Villa on May 30.

"We have a squad available that was available recently. Nobody is back," Wenger said.

"[Danny] Welbeck is short and I don't think I've forgotten anybody. He's short a fraction but is not far away. I would love to have him available but we [may] have to do it without him.

"I think he [Aaron Ramsey] will be alright.

"Mathieu Debuchy has a hamstring [problem], he was out [training] for the first time yesterday. He should be available, maybe, if it all goes well, for the cup final.

"He [Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain] will not play next week and after that there's only one week to go for the cup final. I think he will be short but you never know. If he can be available for West Brom, maybe that's the earliest he could be. It's difficult to predict today.

"He has done his hamstring in training. No [he won't need surgery]."
