SPORT Ram­sey out for at least three weeks

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Arse­nal will be with­out Welsh mid­fielder Aaron Ram­sey un­til the end of Novem­ber af­ter he suf­fered a ham­string in­jury dur­ing his side’s Cham­pi­ons League win over Bay­ern Mu­nich on Tues­day.

Ram­sey, who strug­gled with ham­string prob­lems last sea­son, was forced off in the 57th minute and man­ager Arsene Wenger said Ram­sey was “very down” about his lat­est set­back.

He had just be­gun to get back his best form, scor­ing in his pre­vi­ous two matches for club and coun­try.

Wenger sug­gested Ram­sey may have picked up the in­jury as a re­sult of his busy sched­ule, hav­ing al­ready made 17 ap­pear­ances so far this sea­son.

“He had a scan to­day but he’s out. 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 (Gareth) Bale and him as well,” Wenger told the club’s web­site.

Former Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur player Bale came un­der fire from Span­ish me­dia, with sug­ges­tions he had put Wales in front of his club side Real Madrid by play­ing against An­dorra when Wales had al­ready qual­i­fied for the Euro 2016 fi­nals.

Ram­sey will miss Satur­day’s game against Ever­ton, as well as the North Lon­don derby against Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur on Novem­ber 8.

Wenger also con­firmed back-up goal­keeper David Ospina is likely to be out for the same du­ra­tion.
