Ramsey to return to action for Arsenal in ‘2 or 3 weeks’

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has downplayed fears they may have seen the last of Aaron Ramsey by stating that he will return to the action in “two or three weeks”

Gunners supporters were left sweating on Thursday night when Ramsey was forced to withdraw in the 34th-minute of the club’s 1-0 Europa League win at Napoli.

Former Manchester United playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan was brought on for Ramsey, with Alexandre Lacazette firing in a 30-yard free-kick to seal Arsenal a spot in the semi-finals.

But the uncertainty over whether or not Ramsey, who will join Juventus on a free transfer in the summer, has made his final Arsenal appearance stole the headlines.

Speaking on Friday, however, Emery provided supporters with a welcome bit of news by confirming Ramsey is set to make a comeback before the season’s over.

“His progress this season is amazing,” Emery told Sky Sports on Ramsey’s condition.

Arshavin admits he never expected to score four goals in the same match

10 years ago, Andrey Arshavin scored four goals to lead Arsenal to a 4-4 draw against Liverpool, but to him, it was just a normal match.

“At the beginning (of the season), he was a little confused maybe, because he is in the last year of his contract.

“For us, and for me, he is a very important player but his confusion maybe did not help us at some moments in the season – not like his performances now.

“In his last few performances, he has been helping us a lot – and in some of the key moments of this season. His injury is bad news and I don’t know how long he will be out of the team, maybe two or three weeks.”

Ramsey has managed six goals and eight assists in 40 appearances for Arsenal across all competitions this season.

The 28-year-old midfielder has spent over a decade at the Emirates Stadium and will undoubtedly be keen to end his time at Arsenal on a high.

Emery’s side will play host to Crystal Palace on Sunday as they look to strengthen their hold of a top-four spot in the Premier League.
