Arsene Wenger gives injury update: Ozil, Ramsey, Flamini latest

Arsene Wenger Looks On

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has an injury update on key absentees.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has given an injury update with regard to key players after the side's FA Cup win over Hull.

The Gunners won 2-0 thanks to goals from Per Mertesacker and yet another from Alexis Sanchez.

After the game the Frenchman spoke regarding key midfielder Aaron Ramsey, admitting there was a slight chance of him featuring in the squad for the next game against Stoke City at The Emirates.

He added that midfielder Mathieu Flamini stands a better chance, but to expect anybody else to return would be fanciful.

He told Arsenal.com: "Mathieu Flamini could be back, Aaron Ramsey has a little chance. Nobody else. 

"Mikel Arteta will be longer. I think Flamini should be available for selection and maybe Ramsey has a little chance to be back."

His 'nobody else' remark encompasses record signing Mesut Ozil, who it was previously hoped would be fit in time to feature even against Hull.

Wenger clearly has no intention of rushing him back to face Stoke, but it is the following match in which he could be a real difference maker, Arsenal face Manchester City away on January 18.

Even Mikel Arteta is a question mark to make that game, but having both Flamini and probably Ramsey back for their next games is a real positive, especially with Theo Walcott making his first start in a year in the cup win.
