Arsene Wenger gives Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez injury updates

Arsene Wenger spoke about Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez's fitness after the win over Bayern.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has told the club's official website that the rapid flow of games has caught up with star man Alexis Sanchez.

Sanchez was substituted late in the 2-0 win at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, with the game still in the balance with the Gunners holding a 1-0 advantage.

The Chilean international picked up a knock a fortnight ago against Manchester United, only to fly across the world to play in two games for his country - scoring in both.

He continued this form with a goal against Watford at the weekend but Arsene Wenger believes caution is now needed.

He said: "You could see he was a bit jaded physically tonight and he still pushes himself so much but he finished exhausted. The two games with Chile, plus travelling, plus Watford, plus tonight, it is too much."

Arsenal have an important game with Everton at the weekend, and Wenger's comments don't go as far as suggesting he could be out, but they will have to treat him carefully with regard to training.

What about Aaron Ramsey?

It sounds less positive for Aaron Ramsey, who was substituted midway through the second half with the game goalless after picking up an injury.

Arsene Wenger says the Welshman has told him he will miss the weekend clash, and potentially longer, although the club are yet to put an official timeframe on his injury.

He said: "He is alright but very down because he told me that his hamstring is quite a tough one. He is out."
