Arsenal have given a bad news to the fans as they revealed that star player Aaron Ramsey is out until the new year with his hamstring injury.
The Welsh midfielder scored an exceptional goal before picking up a hamstring injury in a Champions League game against Turkish side Galatasaray few days ago.
Yesterday, it was reported that Ramsey will have a test today to see whether he will be available for Newcastle United game this weekend or not. But he failed the test and now will have to miss the Christmas program.
The 23-year-old has joined defenders Nacho Monreal and Laurent Koscielny on the sideline.
While Wenger thanked his countryman Alan Pardew for his compliments yesterday and added regarding the Newcastle United manager that he has changed the club since his arrival. He started the season with difficulty but now have settled his side. Newcastle fans were hoping their club to sack Alan Pardew before the impressive run in the recent weeks.
Arsenal boss said: “I am very thankful for compliments but all I want is to do well for my club.”
The Magpies ended the unbeaten run of Chelsea last weekend and they will surely give a hard time to the Gunners. But Wenger is confident that his side is also in fine form as they have won four out of their last five games.
He further added: “Newcastle had a great result last week and they are going well. But we have won four of our last five we are on a good trend.”
