It’s not all doom and gloom in light of Jack Wilshere’s latest injury blow, with Arsene Wenger confirming that both Aaron Ramsey and Kim Kallstrom are just one week away from full fitness.
The Welshman, who hasn’t featured since the Boxing Day win away at West Ham, was initially ruled out for four weeks with a thigh problem but after a setback has spent over two months on the sidelines. Sorely missed during that time his return is a welcome boost ahead of another hugely challenging run of fixtures.
Kallstrom, as has been well-documented, hasn’t yet featured for the Gunners having signed from Spartak Moscow with a back problem.
Speaking to the press ahead of tomorrow’s FA Cup quarter-final with Everton, Wenger stated: “Ramsey is one week away, he should be back for next weekend. Kallstrom as well.”
All going well the pair should be challenging for a spot on the team coach for next weekend’s game away at Spurs.
