Arsene Wenger met with the press on Friday morning ahead of the return of the Premier League this weekend and Southampton’s arrival at the Emirates.

The manager confirmed that he had no new injuries, although he admitted he has not yet seen Alexis Sanchez or David Ospina who have not arrived back at the club yet.

Confirming the news that Alex Iwobi is back but Aaron Ramsey is not, Wenger said “Iwobi is back in the squad, the only one who is not ready is Aaron Ramsey,” before confirming that Ramsey would not be fit for PSG either.

Ramsey was expected back for this weekend and it’s hard not to be a little concerned given the nature of his injury. This will be the 51st match that he will miss because of a hamstring or thigh problem and we are now into the fourth season of Ramsey having upper leg issues.
