Aaron Ramsey will be assessed in the next 24 to 48 hours to determine the extent of the problem which forced him out of Wales 2-1 win over Andorra on Tuesday.

The Arsenal midfielder limped off the pitch deep into stoppage time, prompting fears that he could miss the Gunners’ crunch clash with Manchester City on Saturday.

Wales boss Chris Coleman revealed that the 23-year-old suffered an apparent ankle problem in the Euro 2016 qualifier.

“He got kick on his ankle and twisted it,” said Coleman.

“Coming to the end of the game, we’ve got players with experience so it was pointless taking the risk. I won’t do that with any of the players.

“Hopefully he’ll be OK for Arsenal at the weekend but we’ll have to see what the next 24-48 hours holds.”

Ramsey made no mention of the injury when he took to Twitter after the game on Tuesday night.

Ramsey wrote: “Good to get 3 points from our opening game. Not the easiest of pitches to play on but job done! #Wales #Cymru”
