Arsenal will be without Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta for their next two games after the pair picked up injuries in the 1-1 draw with Sp*rs today.
The captain suffered a calf strain while Aaron Ramsey hurt his hamstring, something which left Arsene Wenger flummoxed after the game.
“It’s a hamstring injury for Ramsey. I rested him in midweek so I don’t understand.” he said.
With an Interlull after the Chelsea game they may well not miss as much football had this happened at another time, but it’s still not ideal with two massive games this week.
Wenger was also worried about Jack Wilshere who went over on his ankle in the first half but was ok to continue, but said he wasn’t yet sure if the England man would be out for the Champions League and Sunday’s clash at Stamford Bridge.
