Wenger delivers latest Arsenal injury update after Galatasaray victory
Arsene Wenger plays down concerns about Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini's fitness
Arsene Wenger has revealed that Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini were substituted during Arsenal’s win over Galatasaray as precautions.
The midfield pair were both replaced at half-time during the 4-1 Champions League victory in Turkey with minor injury complaints.
But Wenger revealed afterwards that the duo should be fit to face Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday.
“Ramsey had a hamstring, but should be alright for Saturday,” Wenger said. “Flamini had a calf, but should be OK.”
Ramsey, who scored twice in the first half against Galatasaray, also played down concerns about his fitness after the game.
“I felt a bit of a tight hamstring at half-time,” said Ramsey. “So I came off as a precaution with the game against Newcastle at the weekend.”
