Arsenal will face an anxious wait as they will discover the seriousness of Aaron Ramsey’s thigh injury in the coming days.
It has been widely reported that the Welshman could be sidelined for up to six weeks, which in turn would see him miss the majority of the Premier League title run-in.
Furthermore, it would also put his participation at Euro 2016 under doubt, with just weeks left to fully recover and regain his match fitness to feature for Chris Coleman’s side.
Ramsey had only been on the pitch for 16 minutes during Arsenal’s 4-0 win over Hull City in the FA Cup on Tuesday night, before he pulled up and came off injured.
Arsene Wenger didn’t sound too optimistic when asked about the injury shortly after the game, and it appears as though his fears could become a reality later this week as he allayed fears over knocks picked up by Per Mertesacker and Gabriel.
The influential midfielder is set for a scan and examination on Thursday, as noted by Sky Sports, with the projected six-week lay-off forcing him to miss all but two of the remaining nine league games.
In contrast, Wenger has received a boost with the news that Jack Wilshere has resumed light training as he continues to work his way back to full fitness having missed the entire season thus far.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t escape the fact that the Gunners are also without Santi Cazorla, Tomas Rosicky, Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with regards to their midfield, while Petr Cech and Laurent Koscielny are also in the treatment room.
