Arsenal have confirmed that Aaron Ramsey will miss tomorrow night’s Europa League semi-final against Valencia, but perhaps significantly have not ruled him out of any further games.
The Welshman picked up a hamstring strain in our 1-0 win away at Napoli in the previous round, and has been sidelined since. Reports in the last 24 hours suggested his season was over, but the club have not confirmed that in the latest medical update.
Those reports also appear to have originated from The Sun, so we can hold out some hope that it’s not true based on that alone, but we’ll wait and see if Unai Emery provides a bit more detail on the midfielder when he meets the press later this afternoon. The initial diagnosis was that he’d be available again inside three weeks.
Arsenal have, however, confirmed the absence of Denis Suarez who himself announced his season was over on Monday after failing to recover in time from a groin strain.
Nacho Monreal remains a doubt after missing the 3-0 defeat to Leicester with a calf problem, while there’s no mention at all of Mesut Ozil so we assume he’s recovered from the foot injury which kept him out of the same game.
