Arsenal's Ramsey to miss Tottenham match
Arsene Wenger has confirmed Arsenal will be without Aaron Ramsey against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Sky Sports has reported.
It had been hoped that the Wales midfielder would be able to return from a long-standing thigh problem against the Gunners’ local rivals but Wenger has said the game will come too soon for Ramsey.
“We have had to defer his comeback to full training a little so he is not available,” Wenger told the official Arsenal website. “He is having difficulties in the final stages of his rehab. It looks to be short-term,” the manager added.
Arsenal will also be without Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil but Kieran Gibbs, Nacho Monreal, Yaya Sanogo and Kim Kallstrom could be available.
“Kallstrom joins the normal training group today and Sanogo too,” Wenger said. “I will have to decide if Kallstrom is okay to be in the squad on Sunday. I will see how he looks, it is not impossible.”
Sweden international Kallstrom has yet to appear for Arsenal after joining on loan from Spartak Moscow in January. Kallstrom, formerly of French side Lyon, was signed on transfer deadline day.
