Ramsey injured

LONDON. — Arsene Wenger said he was concerned about the fitness of Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey after the Arsenal stars suffered injuries in his side’s 2-1 win over Leicester. Wenger insists Sanchez’s knock against Leicester is nothing to worry about, but that he’s concerned over the extent of Ramsey’s injury.

Wenger lamented what looks like a third hamstring injury of the season for Ramsey as the Welsh midfielder went off just nine minutes after coming on as a second half substitute.

He was also critical of heavy Leicester tackling that saw Chile winger Sanchez taken off with a knock following a clash with Matthew Upson at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.

“I don’t know (the extent of the injury) but it is not good news,” Wenger said of Ramsey. “He’s had a recurrence now of a few injuries.

“Sanchez had a knock with his knee and I don’t think he was himself. From the moment he got his knock, he was never comfortable. I don’t know how long he’ll be out. It was a heavy tackle, yes.” — AFP.
