Aaron Ramsey and a clutch of other Arsenal stars could miss the Premier League opener against Liverpool following their summer exertions in France.
Ramsey was speaking following the Euro 2016 semi-final loss to Portugal on Wednesday, confirming he would now take a well-earned break before re-joining his club teammates: "I am back on 1 August, so I have a few weeks off but, obviously, it kicks off a couple of weeks afterwards," Ramsey said. "He [Wenger] does like to give players a little break and I’ll be getting the same treatment. I feel I need a few weeks off now." With Laurent Koscielny, Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil still playing an active part in the tournament, Arsenal may be forced into fielding a weakened side when Jürgen Klopp men's arrive at the Emirates to kick-off the 2016/17 campaign. Wenger will also run the rule over Alexis Sanchez after the winger sustained a nasty ankle injury during the Copa America final win over Argentina at the end of June. Jul 7 - 10:06 AM

Wales made history by making its first-ever European championships this summer and now will add a first-place finish in the group to a growing list of accomplishments.

The Dragons easily disposed of Russia in a 3-0 win thanks to goals from Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey, Swansea City defender Neil Taylor and Gareth Bale, who now leads the Euros with three goals after scoring in every group-stage match. After losing to England in devastating fashion, Wales bounced back to secure three points while watching the Three Lions drop points against Slovakia to win the group by one point. Wales will now face a third-place team from Group A, C, D with Albania a potential opponent in the Round of 16.

Aaron Ramsey teed up Hal Robson-Kanu in the 81st minute as Wales eased past Slovakia 2-1 in Group B action.

Ramsey was looking like he might be the goat after missing a wide open header in the middle of the box in the 64th minute with the score tied at one. He redeemed himself in the 81st minute as he passed to Robson-Kanu who miscued it into the Slovakian net for the go-go-ahead goal.

Aaron Ramsey "...had a good training session on Wednesday..." according to Arsene Wenger and could figure against West Ham United on Saturday.

Reading between the lines of Wenger's press conference, it sounds like Ramsey is almost certain to be on the bench at the outset of this match. The relatively few training sessions he's had since returning from his thigh injury likely mean he's not ready for 90 minutes. In addition, Ramsey's long history of injuries probably means that Mohamed Elneny is the far safer choice to start. If the Gunners need a goal late then Wenger could certainly call on Ramsey to boost the attack but that's about the upper limit of what fantasy managers and supporters should expect from Ramsey in Week 33.

Arsene Wenger, talking ahead of Arsenal's FA Cup match with Watford, has indicated that Aaron Ramsey is likely out for around a month.

Since Ramsey went down injured on Tuesday information on his prognosis had been fairly limited. Arsene Wenger now seems to be planning for a mid-April return for the Wales midfielder. With Santi Cazorla also returning in a similar timeframe and Ramsey having shown poorly in a wide role earlier in the season this injury could spell the end of Ramsey's time as a presumptive starter for the Gunners this season. Expect Mohamed Elneny to partner Francis Coquelin when Arsenal play their preferred eleven until either Ramsey or Cazorla return.

Arsenal are sweating on the fitness of Aaron Ramsey after the Welsh international was forced off within 15 minutes of his introduction from the bench during Tuesdays’ fifth round FA Cup replay at Hull.

Ramsey was one of three Arsenal players whose evening was ended early but by far the biggest concern was the loss of the 25-year-old: "I’m a bit in shock because we lost our two centre-backs and Aaron Ramsey," Wenger told BT Sport. "Mertesacker is not serious, he has just a little concussion, a head injury. Gabriel looks alright but Ramsey I am more concerned about. He has a thigh injury." Ramsey suffered a similar problem back in December, 2013 against West Ham on Boxing Day which resulted in the midfielder only playing seven more times during 2013/14 following a series of setbacks.

Aaron Ramsey returned to first team action as a second half substitute against Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday.

The Wales international missed a few weeks with a hamstring injury but seems likely to get a start on Sunday. The real question is whether Ramsey plays in the attacking role on the right or as a makeshift replacement for Francis Coquelin. The smart money has him in the attacking role but he is probably more valuable from a fantasy point of view as a hoding player where his smart runs tend to end in goals.

Aaron Ramsey won't be ready for Week 13 but Arsene Wenger indicated that he will return to training starting on Monday.

With Joel Campbell having played passably well, Ramsey's return probably isn't the biggest item on Wenger's agenda but the return of some options in attack certainly wouldn't be a bad thing. Campbell is really the only man standing for the right attacking spot with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck all out injured. Ramsey and the Ox are on similar timelines and should provide additional options fairly soon. Walcott is probably a week or two further out with Welbeck still scheduled to return no sooner than the turn of the year. Fortunately, Arsenal's schedule is very light in the Premier League over the next month so if there was a time for players to be recovering, this is it.

Arsene Wenger has revealed that Aaron Ramsey will miss at least three weeks after a scan confirmed the midfielder suffered a hamstring tear during Tuesday nights’ win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Wenger spoke at a media briefing on Thursday in which he provided an update on Ramsey "He had a scan today but he’s out. I believe he will be out until after the next international break." The Arsenal coach was also able to provide further news on David Ospina who injured his shoulder while playing for Colombia "He is out for our next game and certainly until the next international break." And for the long-term absentees [Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Danny Welbeck], "you can say around the New Year." No mention of Alexis Sanchez today, but Wenger did express concerns on Tuesday about his wingers fitness "[He looked] a bit jaded physically - the two games with Chile, plus the travelling, plus Watford, plus tonight, it’s too much."

Aaron Ramsey cut a forlorn figure as the Arsenal midfielder limped off during tonights’ Champions League win over Bayern Munich at The Emirates.

Arsenal finally managed to get their Champions League campaign underway at the third attempt, after beating the much fancied Germans, in a game they simply had to win following back-to-back defeats to Dynamo Zagreb and Olympiakos. Talk prior to the match had suggested that Wenger would rest key players while the manager himself hinted that Ozil and Sanchez would drop to the bench. However, Arsenal were unchanged from the win at Vicarage Road. Despite having over 70 per cent possession [including 600+ passes during the second half alone] Bayern were unable to breakdown Arsenal who have Petr Cech to thank for a superb performance. The only real downer on the evening was losing Ramsey "He's alright but very down. His hamstring; a tough one," revealed Wenger. A scan will confirm the extent of the damage but the Welshman is expected to miss at least 2-3 weeks.

Aaron Ramsey scored his first goal of the season but it's reasonable to ask whether he will be back to his best now that he's "broken the seal".

The smart money is on Ramsey playing experiencing at least a modest uptick in productivity. Goals and assists are hard to predict and his career has shown him to be more effective at accumulating both than he's been thus far this season. Regression to the mean should see him get a boost as he scores and assists more. What is unlikely to come is the volume of defending stats that boosted his totals two seasons ago when he was unquestionably an elite fantasy midfielder. Ramsey isn't a worse player than he was then but he's being played out of position on the right rather than centrally and those sorts of opportunities just aren't there for him.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been continually linked with a move away from the club for the past few months with Barcelona reportedly ready to break the bank to land the Wales international.

The fee rumoured to be in the region of $80 million would hand Wenger a handsome war chest with the cash injection being used to fund a possible 3 or 4 new signings. However Arsenal fans need not worry just yet as Barcelona are unable to complete any signings before January 1, 2016 due a Fifa embargo after breaching rules on the transfer of under-18 players between 2009 and 2013. The upshot. If a deal was to done then realistically this would happen in 12 months’ time. With Theo Walcott expected to sign a new long-term deal and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seemingly over his recent injuries a full strength Arsenal side are capable of causing problems for any team within the BPL - the problem though is keeping these players fit!

Aaron Ramsey overcame a knock picked up against Hull City to start against Swansea City on Monday in a 1-0 Arsenal loss.

Injuries usually prevent Arsene Wenger from fielding the same line-up for too many matches in a row but he was able to field the same line-up for the fifth consecutive match against Swansea. Aaron Ramsey was the biggest risk not to make it back with a significant bruise picked up from a hard tackle against Hull City. He overcame the knock but his presence couldn't help Arsenal score as Swansea "parked the bus" and ground out a surprising win at the Emirates.

Aaron Ramsey has been listed as 50/50 by Arsene Wenger going into Monday's clash with Swansea due to swelling in his leg from a hard tackle in last weekend's match.

With Jack Wilshere coming back to full fitness, it seems likely that Arsene Wenger will play it safe with his Welsh midfielder. Wilshere needs the time on the pitch, Ramsey needs to avoid yet another injury, and Arsenal's match with the Swans isn't THAT critical to how the season finishes up. The Gunners would certainly like to finish second but the difference between second and third isn't significant for anything other than psychological purposes with both spots guaranteeing passage into the group stages of the Champions League for next season.

Aaron Ramsey provided an assist to Alexis Sanchez and then took matters into his own hands and scored Arsenal's second which turned out to be the winner in the 3-1 away result.

It wasn't a vintage Aaron Ramsey performance per se but it was certainly a productive one as the Welshman contributed a goal and an assist to the 3-1 win. The reason to say that it wasn't a vintage performance was that those two contributions were about the only evidence that Ramsey played and he went off after 68 minutes. If the deflection that led to Ramsey's goal goes in a different direction then his week looks entirely different.
