Injuries have been part of Arsenal’s undoing in previous seasons but we seem to have a large enough squad to be able to cope with the absence of some players.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey suffered a hamstring injury in Arsenal’s opening Premier League game but made a come-back against Sunderland last weekend and also started against Ludogret last night.
The Welsh international has insisted that he is ready to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League this weekend.
The Wales international, who today was called up to the squad by Red Dragons manager Chris Coleman, has now revealed he is feeling good and is prepared to face Spurs this coming weekend.
“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 has managed just 74 minutes of league action this season and seemed rather rusty – as expected – in the win on Tuesday night.
The central midfielder was taken off with 16 minutes left to play in Bulgaria, after being replaced by England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
