Ramsey and Ozil to miss out as Arsenal plays Tottenham



Arsenal duo Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey will both miss the
North London derby due to injury, Arsene Wenger has confirmed.
Ozil was substituted at half-time of the 1-1 Champions League draw
against Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening with a hamstring injury.
While Ramsey, who suffered a thigh strain during Arsenal’s 3-1 win
against West Ham in December, has had to postpone his expected
return date, although Wenger insists the delay is only minor.
Of Ozil, the Arsenal boss said: “He is out. I don’t know for how
long but it is a hamstring injury. There are scans going on.”
While he added of Ramsey: “We have had to defer his comeback to
full training a little so he is not available. He is having difficulties in
the final stages of his rehab. It looks to be short-term.”
Jack Wilshere is already missing for the Gunners, but there is better
news regarding Kim Kallstrom, a loan signing from Spartak
Moscow who is yet to appear due to a back injury.
Kallstrom, alongside Yaya Sanogo, could be named in the squad to
face Tottenham on Sunday.
Kieran Gibbs will have a fitness test on Friday before a decision is
made regarding his inclusion, but Wenger is hopeful Nacho Monreal
will be fit to play.
