Aaron Ramsey could face Manchester City and says: 'I'll be alright'

Aaron Ramsey

The 23-year-old is hoping to be fit for Saturday's big Premier League clash despite limping off injured during Wales duty.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is hoping to be fit for his side's clash against Manchester City, despite limping off for Wales against Andorra last night.

The 23-year-old went off injured during his country's 2-1 win, with the Andorran pitch hardly proving conducive to player safety.

However, the Gunners midfielder has allayed any injury fears after the game.

Indeed, Ramsey says he'll be 'alright' and believes the injury should be 'nothing.' Hopefully, he says, he will be fit to face Premier League champions Man City on Saturday.

"I'll be alright - the pitch was very hard. There's no give in it so I rolled my ankle a bit," he told reporters.

"Hopefully it will be nothing and I'll be available for Saturday. These are the games you want to play in and I'm looking forward to it."

The north London side host Manuel Pellegrini's men in the early kick-off and will be hoping to get their first win against City for some time.

Last term, Arsenal drew with Pellegrini's side at the Emirates Stadium but were subjected to a 6-3 thrashing at the Etihad.

So far this season, City have won two Premier League matches but lost their last to Stoke City. Arsenal, by contrast, are unbeaten but have less points than the Manchester side after drawing their last two clashes - at Everton and then Leicester City.

Ramsey will no doubt make a big difference to Arsene Wenger's side's fortunes, although the 23-year-old was not on top form at Leicester.
