Key Gunner reveals important injury update ahead of Tottenham

Arsene Wenger is set to have a selection dilemma for Sunday’s Premier League clash with local rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

The Gunners are to welcome Mauricio Pochettino’s side who are only three points behind them on the table despite a recent run of disappointing results.

Arsene Wenger’s men prepared for Sunday’s showdown at the Emirates stadium by securing a dramatic away victory over Ludogorets after coming back from being 2-0 down.

With injuries often a concern for Wenger, a couple of key players are likely to undergo fitness tests ahead of this weekend’s affair.

However, Aaron Ramsey, who just recovered from a hamstring problem, has dismissed any doubts about his fitness heading into the north London derby.

“I’m ready to face Tottenham,” Ramsey told the London Evening Standard. “I wouldn’t have been out there starting last night if I wasn’t ready. It was great for me.

“I’ve been out injured for a couple of months now and it was nice to be back starting again and getting 70-odd minutes. That will put me in good shape going into the weekend and hopefully I can stay fit.”

Ramsey was involved for 74 minutes on Tuesday as Arsenal clinched a spot in the next round of the Champions League for the 17th straight season.
