Arsenal star unlikely to start v Spurs

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey could miss the North London derby on Sunday, with the Welshman still struggling for match fitness, reports The Guardian.

Aaron Ramsey joined Arsen 011 Arsenal star unlikely to start v Spurs

Ramsey returned to full training last week and was expected to make a return against Tottenham, which is the first of a difficult sequence of fixtures that could define Arsenal’s season.

The Welshman was one of the star performers for the Gunners in the first half of the season but has not played since Boxing Day, when he damaged his thigh at West Ham.

Arsenal will definitely be without record signing Mesut Ozil, who will miss out with a hamstring injury. The German international was forced off at half-time against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night, and Wenger said the injury looked quite serious which would leave Ozil for at least a few weeks.

It is understood that Ozil will miss the league games against Tottenham, Chelsea, Swansea City and Manchester City and, most probably, Everton on 6th April.

Left-back Kieran Gibbs, who missed the Champions League tie in the midweek, is also doubtful for the Spurs match, but Wenger expects to have Nacho Monreal back after a foot problem.

January loan signing Kim Kallstrom, who hasn’t yet featured for the club due to a back injury, should be vying to make his Arsenal debut this weekend.

  1. We av lost premiership trophy already so let’s. Try to be in top 4 notin more for that FA is our hope I pray to GOD to help us to win it.

  2. These injuries could not really come at a much worse time for Arsenal. Just as they normally seem to, Arsenal are failing in the trophy end of the season. They need players like Ozil and Ramsey firing on all cylinders to be able to win trophies, and having already been eliminated from the Champions League, the FA Cup and Premier League remain the focus for them. Hopefully they can continue producing entertaining ball and win their annual trophy -4th place! Get your soccer gear at http://www.soccerstop.com
