Aaron Ramsey did not do his hamstring against Watford as many assumed, rather he did his calf instead while the Ox got a kick.
The latter is not expected to be out of action, which is handy as we head to Chelsea with no midfield to speak of.
Ramsey, however, could be sidelined for a lot longer.
I guess it’s a good thing that it’s not his hamstring given how troublesome they have been for him in the past. But a muscle injury at Arsenal is like a black hole in space. Who knows when he’ll be back? Well, maybe not really like a black hole after all, you don’t come back from those, do you?
Speaking after the game, Arsene Wenger said of Aaron, “It’s a calf strain. I don’t know how long he will be out for, but it’s a calf strain.” Wenger seemed keen to highlight it is his calf, possibly because there were reports from Friday Ramsey was carrying a hamstring problem and if that had gone…well, it wouldn’t look good, would it?
As for the Ox, that news is more encouraging. “He got a kick on his knee, yes.
