Aaron Ramsey is back in training and in the squad for the trip to Bournemouth on Sunday the 14th.
Whether Arsene Wenger deems the Wales international ready to return to the starting eleven is another question entirely, and one that Wenger didn't answer explicitly in his Friday news conference. With both Jack Wilshere and Ramsey coming off of injuries and both listed as "returning" it is reasonable to expect that selection could go either way for the Gunners this weekend. It is probably wise not to count on either player if you have to make a decision before starting line-ups are announced. Jan 12 - 2:12 PM

Aaron Ramsey will miss Arsenal's huge match-up with Liverpool on Friday as he continues to recover from his hamstring injury.

The Wales international was reportedly close to featuring last weekend but apparently his recovery will take longer. The story is a familiar one for Ramsey who seems to consistently take longer than anticipated to recover from the soft tissue injuries he picks up with alarming frequency. With the Gunners facing a Liverpool side that embarrassed them earlier in the season, they will have to hope Jack Wilshere can continue to push forward.

Despite hopes that he would be ready for the weekend, Aaron Ramsey has been ruled out of Arsenal's side that will face Newcastle at the Emirates on Saturday.

The Gunners will need a big bounce back after failing to score against West Ham in midweek. Part of the hope for a rebound was a quick return from the in form Welsh midfielder but it will apparently not come to pass. It seems more likely that he will have to wait until the Friday match with Liverpool to kick off Week 19. Jack Wilshere will almost certainly deputize again and, based on what we saw against West Ham, Arsenal shouldn't suffer too much for the difference between the two.

Aaron Ramsey has been in fine form but, as so often has happened with the Welshman, his fine form has been interrupted by a soft tissue injury.

Ramsey came off of the 1-1 draw with Southampton with a hamstring injury and it isn't yet clear how long it will keep him on the sidelines but Week 17 at the London Stadium will certainly come too soon. It isn't unreasonable, given Ramsey's history, to assume that he'll also miss Week 18 and possibly Week 19 as well as he recovers. Arsenal are fortunate to have a reserve the quality of Jack Wilshere to deputize for Ramsey while he recovers.

Aaron Ramsey looks set for another spell on the sidelines after limping through the final minutes of Sunday's game at St Mary’s due to a hamstring injury.

Olivier Giroud grabbed a last-gasp point for the Gunners who trailed to a 3rd minute Charlie Austin strike. However, Arsène Wenger believes it could’ve been more with eleven players pushing for the win following an injury to Ramsey. "He has a hamstring problem," Wenger told "In the last 10 or 12 minutes if we had him fully fit it would have helped. That’s why it’s sometimes a big gamble when you [make substitutions] early." Even though initial reports suggest the problem is only minor, with such a quick turnaround between matches [Arsenal travel to West Ham on Wednesday], the Wales international is likely to miss out. Wenger has a number of potential replacements at his disposal, but the general consensus, from supporters, is that Jack Wilshere should be given his chance after impressing in the Europa League and Carabao Cup this season.

Arsenal broke Burnley hearts for a third consecutive match as Alexis buried a stoppage time penalty for the only goal of the match.

It was a frustrating day for more than ninety minutes but the oft-maligned Gunners kept pushing forward and were rewarded as Aaron Ramsey was pushed over in the box by James Tarkowski. Alexis converted the penalty and Arsenal escaped Lancashire with a good win.

Arsenal conceded two comical goals but scored five at Goodison for a comfortable victory.

Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey both scored and assisted as Arsenal powered to a 5-2 victory early on Sunday. The two midfielders were joined on the score sheet by Monreal, Lacazette, and Alexis who scored his first of the season in the league.

Aaron Ramsey is back in training and Arsene Wenger will have the choice to deploy him against Everton on Sunday.

With the option of playing it cautious, both with selection and Ramsey's injury status, you'd never want to predict what Wenger will do here but after Arsenal struggled to generate an attack with Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny at the base of midfield, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Ramsey right back in the starting line-up. The alternative would be Wenger giving Jack Wilshere a first Premier League start after a couple of Europa League run-outs. As always, Wenger's choices will be highly scrutinized regardless of which player he chooses this weekend.

Arsenal put on a fine defensive display and picked up a rare positive result on the road against a top six side as they played Chelsea to a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge.

They didn't win, they didn't score, but Arsenal should be very happy with the result today, exorcising a couple of demons by getting a positive result against the Blues and doing it with a clean sheet. Arsene Wenger named an XI that did not include Mesut Ozil or Alexis Sanchez, but they still managed to create some changes,mainly through an impressive shift by Aaron Ramsey, who came closest to scoring for the Gunners, when he broke through the Chelsea defense only to have his shot clang off the far post. Alexander Lacazette had a sitter for a rebound but missed. Sead Kolasinac showed his threat yet again, but no end product. The defense was the story though and is a positive sign going forward for Arsenal.

Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla are the only definite absentees on Sunday although Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey will be assessed ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge.

The midfielder duo missed the 3-1 win over FC Cologne in the Europa League but Arsène Wenger was quick to play down fears of any serious injury concerns by confirming that he expects both to recover: "I think they should be alright." However, there are no such problems with the remainder of the squad who were rested on Thursday – Petr Cech, Laurent Koscielny and Alexandre Lacazette. Jack Wilshere will be hoping his impressive cameo can earn him a place in the matchday squad but Calum Chambers will probably sit this one out as he builds fitness with the under-23s. Alexis Sanchez is pushing for a start following a stunning goal and more minutes under his belt.

Aaron Ramsey has returned to training ahead of Arsenal's season opener on Friday against Leicester City.

The Wales international has a long history of soft tissue injuries so the expectation should be that Arsene Wenger will be conservative with his midfielder. Ramsey is likely to be ready for Week 2 assuming his recovery progresses but Week 1 seems like it will come too soon. Look for Mohamed Elneny to get the start next to Granit Xhaka at the heart of midfield assuming that the Team News out of the Emirates matches up with this report.

Led by goals from Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley Stadium to win the 2016-17 FA Cup title.

After a season that saw the club and manager heavily criticized for finishing fifth in the league there was a silver lining in the form of an FA Cup title. Not only did the Gunners best league champions Chelsea but they were the better side for long stretches of the match. They could have easily scored five on the day with Ramsey, Ozil, and Welbeck going close in addition to the two goals they did score. The win was all the more impressive with Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi, and Gabriel all missing from Arsenal's central defense.

Aaron Ramsey went off early in mid-week against Sunderland with a thigh complaint but he is fit again and will be available for selection against Everton on Sunday.

The Wales international has been playing better in recent weeks partnering an improving Granit Xhaka in central midfield in front of a trio of center backs. Perhaps Xhaka's improvement combined with the security of three center backs has lessened the need for Ramsey to hold position in the center of the park. With the freedom to push forward he has picked up assists in two of his previous three Premier League matches and looked likely to break his season-long goal drought. Look for him to get the start against Everton at the Emirates with Arsenal needing a win to have a chance to finish fourth.

Aaron Ramsey returns to the Arsenal squad after the better part of a month on the sidelines with yet another muscle injury, this time a calf.

Arsene Wenger again faces a difficult decision at the base of his midfield. With Santi Cazorla out for the year he is without his best option. What remains are two imperfect options. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has shown promise but is inexperienced in that position. Aaron Ramsey is probably a little rusty as well as having proven on a number of occasions that he lacks the positional discipline to play in that spot. With a difficult and physically gifted opponent like Liverpool on the schedule this weekend expect Oxlade-Chamberlain to get the start unless Wenger goes extra conservative and starts Granit Xhaka and Francis Coquelin together in an effort to keep the Reds at bay.

Aaron Ramsey will miss the next three weeks with a calf injury picked up early against Watford on Tuesday.

With the Wales international set to miss out, Arsene Wenger will hope Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is ready to partner Francis Coquelin. The Ox picked up a minor knee issue against Watford but was able to finish out the match. Beyond Oxlade-Chamberlain, Arsenal are light on numbers with Granit Xhaka suspended, Santi Cazorla out injured, and Mohamed Elneny on African Cup of Nations duty.
