The FA Cup

'Good luck' - Injured Arsenal star on Twitter wishing team-mates best v Everton

Aaron Ramsey is right behind his team-mates this lunchtime...

Arsenal kick off against Everton in about half an hour - and one Arsenal star has been wishing them luck in his absence.

Welsh international Aaron Ramsey has been in the papers this week. He is all set to sign a new deal at The Emirates, is closing in on a recovery from his thigh injury and has been wishing the Welsh rugby team well in a humorous Instagram video.

But his return to injury has not come soon enough for the FA Cup game this Saturday lunchtime against Roberto Martinez’s Everton.

So he will not be in the team - but he will be supporting his boys - at least that is what it seems from this Tweet:

Two big days of support for Ramsey then with the Six Nations tomorrow - he will be hoping for a celebratory evening come tomorrow.

Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game…

Arsenal starting XI: Fabianski, Sagna, Vermaelen, Mertesacker, Gibbs, Arteta, Flamini, Ozil, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Sanogo

Subs: Viviano, Jenkinson, Rosicky, Ryo, Podolski, Giroud, Gnabry

Everton starting XI: Robles, Coleman, Stones, Distin, Baines, Barkley, Pienaar, Barry, McCarthy, Mirallas, Lukaku

Subs: Howard, Browning, Hibbert, McGeady, Deulofeu, Osman, Naismith
