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.

Aaron Ramsey managed to deflect a goal into his own net and suffer an injury inside of twenty minutes of Arsenal's 2-1 loss to Watford at the Emirates.

After playing well at the weekend against Southampton, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may have earned a spot at the base of the Arsenal midfield. Aaron Ramsey didn't look good, was unlucky contributing to Tom Cleverley's opener and then went off injured. It seems certain that he'll miss out on the weekend and should Oxlade-Chamberlain impress he doesn't exactly have a high bar to overcome given how Ramsey has performed since coming back into the Arsenal midfield. It's no guarantee but I wouldn't bank on Ramsey being the starter once he returns.

After Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's excellent start against Southampton in mid-week the identity of Francis Coquelin's partner in the base of midfield is in question.

Aaron Ramsey has been mediocre for Arsenal since being given an opportunity to take over for the injured Santi Cazorla. He has trouble maintaining positional discipline which undermines the notion of having two players at the base of midfield. If he were scoring goals to compensate then maybe that would be OK but he's not doing that either. After watching Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain maintain discipline and create from a deep-lying role over the weekend, Arsene Wenger has a decision to make about who will start against Watford on Tuesday.

Aaron Ramsey's latest hamstring issue appears to be behind him as he should be ready to feature in some form or fashion on Boxing Day against West Brom.

The return of Ramsey yields a number of prickly questions for Arsene Wenger. First, is he "really" ready to return given all the issues he's had with his hamstrings in recent years? Second, is he fit enough to start? Third, if he is fit enough to start, is there a place for him in the starting line-up? With Sanchez, Ozil, and Walcott all healthy Ramsey would either be coming in for Alex Iwobi/Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the left of the advanced attacking three or for one of Coquelin or Xhaka at the base of midfield. We've seen him struggle far more than succeed in both situations. This isn't going to be an easy decision for Wenger.

Aaron Ramsey will join Shkodran Mustafi, Per Mertesacker, Santi Cazorla, and Danny Welbeck in missing Arsenal's Week 17 trip to the Etihad to face Manchester City.

A minor hamstring injury has the Welsh international missing his second consecutive match for the Gunners on Sunday. Given the poor fit for Ramsey in the available spots - wide attacker and holding midfielder - it may be a blessing in disguise for Arsene Wenger. When healthy, Wenger has persisted in picking Ramsey in positions he is not particularly well-suited to play.

Aaron Ramsey and a mostly second string Arsenal side were swept aside by Southampton in the quarterfinals of the EFL Cup ending the club's run in that competition.

Ramsey was given a run out at what most suspect is his best position, the number ten. While he was ineffective, it's hard to gauge whether it was down to Ramsey's personal poor play or a lack of talent and cohesion around him as Arsenal started primarily second-teamers against a strong Southampton side. Arsenal were rarely dangerous and, to make matters worse, could have given up more if Southampton had been more clinical. Arsene Wenger uses the League Cup as an opportunity for players outside the first team and the club paid the price for that on Wednesday.

Aaron Ramsey has been back in training for a couple weeks now and, with Santi Cazorla struggling, could make his second start of the season against Sunderland.

It's hard to imagine Wenger giving Ramsey 90 minutes in his return from a muscle injury but with Cazorla hurt and Sunderland the opposition, his preferred script is probably to give Ramsey about 60 minutes, get a lead, and then shut the door with whichever of Coquelin/Xhaka/Elneny doesn't start. If it looks like he's going to start, Ramsey is a valuable fantasy commodity.
