Arsenal FC news: Arsene Wenger faces another midfield crisis

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Premier League 0 Comment 36

Arsene Wenger has been taken down a notch as he experiences yet another midfield crisis, the Frenchman is expected to be without Aaron Ramsey for his side Premier League match at Stamford Bridge. Ramsey sustained a calf-injury at during Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Watford on Tuesday and he is unlikely to recover in time for the clash.

The Gunners would lose all hope of winning the Premier League title should they lose to the league leaders, which might see the north London club get evicted from the first four position as well.

Ramsey, who inadvertently deflected Younes Kaboul’s strike past Petr Cech to put the visitors ahead, was forced off with less than a quarter of the game gone as another injury struck the Wales international.

The Welshman was forced off the pitch in the first half of the game when he got struck
“It’s a calf strain,” Wenger confirmed after the game.

“I don’t know how long he will be out for, but it’s a calf strain.”

The 26-year-old had already missed 13 games this season having suffered hamstring injury during Arsenal opening match defeat to Liverpool. Now Ramsey is set to return to the sidelines at crucial time of the season.

Wenger is again short on midfielder with Granit Xhaka serving a four-game ban for his second red card of the season, Mohamed Elneny at the African Cup of Nation with Egypt, Santi Cazorla out for two month, and Jack Wilshere on loan at Bournemouth.

Wenger would be watching from the stands himself as he continues four-game touchline ban.
