Despite the typical injury crisis, Arsene Wenger has continued to play it safe with Aaron Ramsey in his return from his hamstring injury.
In years past the Arsenal manager would likely have rushed Aaron Ramsey back to the starting line-up to make up for the absences of Wilshere, Walcott and Ozil. This time around he has been more cautious bringing the Welsh midfielder back into the starting line-up. Maybe it is a luxury afforded by a relatively soft schedule over the two weeks or maybe the new fitness guru at the Emirates has recommended a different approach. Whatever the reason, Ramsey has only been a substitute against Sunderland and Burnley. Will he be deemed ready to go for the trip to his native Wales and Swansea in Week 11? We will see but that would seem like the ideal time to bring him back to the starting line-up. Nov 4 - 10:36 AM

Arsenal are expecting Aaron Ramsey to return to Premier League action when they face Sunderland in gameweek 9.

The midfielder played the full 90 minutes against Anderlecht and should draw another start here as Arsenal are missing a number of important players from midfield including Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil. Ramsey has been spectacular in the past two season when he's been able to stay healthy and we would recommend him in a favorable matchup this week.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey will reportedly miss between a month and six weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury against Spurs on Saturday.

Arsenal's midfield injury crisis appears to be coming a little early this season with Arteta (for the second time), Wilshere, and Ramsey all limping off in the North London Derby. Wilshere may yet be fit for Arsenal's big upcoming matches (Galatasaray on Wednesday and Chelsea on Sunday) but Ramsey and Arteta are both certain to miss out. At least the international break is coming at the right time for the Gunners who may also get Theo Walcott back soon.

For the first time this season, Aaron Ramsey was invisible from a fantasy point of view despite his team enjoying a relatively comfortable 3-0 win.

Ramsey's poor fantasy showing had less to do with him not doing any of the positive things that he usually does but had more to do with an accumulation of negatives counterbalancing the positive. He committed two fouls and was shown a yellow card which brought his fantasy total down to a barely-perceptible 1. It is highly likely that this was a one-week anomaly but it is worth watching as Arsenal continue to shuffle their midfield and attacking players as they search for their optimal formation and line-up.

Aaron Ramsey continued to delivery great all-around performances for Arsenal with 16 point performance in the Yahoo format in Week 4.

It isn't hard for a midfielder to get an assist and still not come close to breaking double digit fantasy points in the Yahoo format. Ramsey didn't just get to double digits, he used a strong all-around performance with three passes intercepted and four tackles won in addition to a shot on target and an assist. There aren't many players who are going to get you two-way fantasy production these days.

While certainly not a lock to start, Arsenal supporters will be boosted by reports that Aaron Ramsey trained with the team on Friday ahead of Saturday's clash with Manchester City.

There is a school of thought that says that Arsenal's biggest problem when playing top level competition over the second half of last season was Aaron Ramsey's absence. The midfielder's ability to tackle, control the attack and run from deeper positions to score solidified the midfield and prevented the sort of running wild that characterized the big losses to Liverpool, City and Everton last season. Regardless, Ramsey is one of Arsenal's best players and his presence, assuming he is a go, should improve the Gunners' chances against City tomorrow.

As the clock ticked towards full time on a Gareth Bale inspired Welsh win in Andorra the result was tinged with concern as Aaron Ramsey hobbled to the sidelines with only minutes to go.

Headlines to the build-up of this Euro 2016 qualifier had been dominated by the pitch and the state of the 3G artificial turf at the new national stadium which had only been deemed suitable to stage the game six days prior. UEFA had been unhappy with the decision as ‘the ball rolled too quickly’ while Gareth Bale was far from complimentary "by far the worst I have ever played on." The pitch also played a part in the injury that caused Ramsey’s early departure "the pitch was very hard there's no give in it so I rolled my ankle a bit." The Arsenal midfielder will now be assessed before Saturday’s crucial game against Manchester City but remains quietly optimistic of making the match.

Aaron Ramsey limped to the sidelines during the dying moments of Wales Euro 2016 qualifying win over Andorra on Tuesday.

Arsenal supporters will be sweating on the fitness of key midfielder Aaron Ramsey after the Welsh international was forced off during additional time due to an ankle injury. Ramsey has become an automatic choice in the heart of the Gunners midfield and his performances were pivotal in Arsenal’s championship charge last season before a thigh injury curtailed his campaign. An appearance this weekend hangs in the balance as coach Chris Coleman confirmed post-match that Aaron Ramsey had "twisted his ankle and got a kick." The player will be assessed ahead of Saturday’s early kick-off against Manchester City at The Emirates but Arsenal will be able to call upon the services of Mikel Arteta, Kieran Gibbs and Mesut Ozil – after a return to full training - should he fail to recover in time.

Arsenal's star midfielder Aaron Ramsey is the top premium midfield choice for Week 3.

Arsenal seemed destined for defeat at Everton before Ramsey popped up with yet another vital goal to trigger the fight-back, and the midfielder will be fresh after missing the exhausting Champions League victory in midweek due to suspension. Expect another inspired display against Leicester in a game the Gunners need to win to ensure they don't start dropping behind the early pace-setters.

It wasn't as impressive as Week 1 but Aaron Ramsey continues to churn out the fantasy points even as Arsenal struggle with their attacking form.

With 13 points in the Yahoo format and 9 in the PL.com format, Aaron Ramsey has overcome Arsenal's mediocre attacking start to the season to be a fantasy star. The Welsh midfielder's fast start to the season is far less of a surprise after he took a massive leap forward last season, the only thing he had left to prove was that his performance wasn't a one-year wonder. After two matches, the only question remaining is whether he can stay healthy enough to put together an entire season of excellence.

Everton were in complete control, going up 2-0 by halftime and controlling play for the majority of the second half, but Arsenal struck for two goals in the final 8 minutes to steal a point in the 2-2 final.

Amazing how a few minutes can completely change the script of a Premier League game. Reporters were probably already well into writing their copy that no doubt would have included phrases like "The Gunners put on a horrific display" or "What was Wenger thinking with that XI?". Questions still remain but they pulled two nifty goals out of their hat, the first came when Santi Cazorla sent a low cross to a charging Ramsey in the box, and Rambo delivered again. Then, in the final moments of normal time, Nacho Monreal recovered a loose ball in the corner, then sent a cross into the box that Olivier Giroud connected on and leveled the score. The Gunners have a history of poor showings from time to time, but this game was like a microcosm of how badly and how deadly they can be. Not to be forgotten, the defense was extremely poor, and that would have to be attributed to the absence of Laurent Koscielny.

Aaron Ramsey will miss the second leg of Arsenal's UCL group stage qualifying tie with Besiktas in North London after being shown two yellow cards in Istanbul.

Arsenal will have to hope they have Mesut Ozil back and better form from Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla who were both off the mark. They will definitely be missing Aaron Ramsey who will be suspended for the match at the Emirates. Arsenal return home needing a win in the return fixture after the first leg ended nil-nil despite multiple good chances for both sides.

Aaron Ramsey scored late to give listless Arsenal a 2-1 home win on opening day.

The Gunners didn't make it easy on their supporters as they conceded an early debut goal to Brede Hangeland. Laurent Koscielny headed home an Alexis Sanchez free kick on the stroke of halftime to draw Arsenal even. When it looked like it would end that way Aaron Ramsey came to the rescue as has been his recent habit. It wasn't pretty but it was three points.

Unsurprisingly, Aaron Ramsey is the top fantasy midfield pick in our weekly player picks column.

The Arsenal midfielder was the stand-out fantasy player in the first half of last season, before a serious injury led to him missing most of the second half. Ramsey is back to full fitness now and showed his quality and sharpness in the Community Shield, so should be high on your agenda for the home game against Crystal Palace.

Arsenal fell behind 2-0 early and had to fight back into extra time to win their first trophy in nine years but Aaron Ramsey scored Olivier Giroud's backheel for the deciding goal in the 109th minute.

After Hull City's shocking early two-goal outburst through James Chester and Curtis Davies Arsenal faced a huge mountain to climb between the scoreboard and the weight of recent history. After an excellent Santi Cazorla free kick and a Laurent Koscielny goal off of a scramble in front of net drew the tie even in regulation, Aaron Ramsey scored a brilliant right footed goal from an Olivier Giroud back heel to win the match in extra time. Arsenal had three great opportunities to win in regulation - 2 legitimate Santi Cazorla penalty appeals and a blown Kieran Gibbs shot from close range - but there was never any doubt that they'd make their supporters agonize a little longer.
