Arsenal Injury News: Giroud, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain
Ahead of this weekend’s important trip to Stamford Bridge, there are a few injury concerns for Arsene Wenger’s side.
So here is a round-up of what the latest word is on certain players who may be likely to miss out on the clash against Chelsea.
Olivier Giroud managed to feature for only 45 minutes on Tuesday as Watford secured a surprising 2-1 victory at the Emirates stadium.
It was not fully clear at the time whether his substitution was due to injury or not but a report by Football.London is suggesting that the striker is now a doubt for Arsenal’s next fixture because of an ankle problem.
The Welshman’s night was brought to an early end on Tuesday as he was withdrawn for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after only 20 minutes of action.
According to various reports, it is now a certainty that Ramsey will play no part in this weekend’s Premier League affair.
Arsene Wenger moved to play down fears of another severe injury for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after the defeat to Watford.
The 23-year-old’s knee problem is not serious enough to rule him out of the upcoming match.
