Arsene Wenger: Latest injury update on Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says midfielder Aaron Ramsey could be out for up to three weeks after suffering a hamstring injury against Bayern Munich.

The Welshman joins goalkeeper David Ospina and midfielder Mikel Arteta on the sidelines with the goalkeeper also not back before the next international break.

Long-term absentees Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Danny Welbeck will be back in the first part of next year.

"He [Aaron Ramsey] had a scan today but he's out," Wenger revealed.

"I believe he will be out until after the next international break. With the [last] international break, the fact that he played against Andorra certainly cost Bale and him as well.

"Maybe he was overloaded a little bit with games. Ideally I think not him or Bale should have played against Andorra, because they were qualified.

"But unfortunately I could not decide that. I was in a position after that where I thought I could rest him against Watford.

"In the end I didn't do it and of course after, against Bayern, I had not much choice and we got punished. Ideally he should have had a breather, or at Watford. Realistically, the real breather he could have had was against Andorra.

"We lost [Mikel] Arteta on Thursday with an ankle problem, From the [Bayern] game we have no injuries but we lost Arteta [in training] yesterday unfortunately.

"David Ospina is out for our next game and certainly until the next international break.

"For them [Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Danny Welbeck], you can say around the New Year."
