Aaron Ramsey and Laurent Koscielny have been ruled out of Arsenal’s clash with Newcastle on Saturday.

Ramsey was substituted at half-time during Tuesday’s 4-1 win over Galatasaray, while Koscielny is out with a calf problem.

Wenger also confirmed that Nacho Monreal will miss out, while Calum Chambers is suspended.

“He has a calf strain and that’s why he’s out,” said Wenger of Koscielny, before being quizzed about Ramsey: “It’s a shame because he was getting close to matching last season’s form.”

The Frenchman did, however, confirm that Kieran Gibbs, Mathieu Flamini, Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck are all fit and ready to face the Magpies.

“He [Gibbs] is available and Flamini is available too. Sanchez, Giroud and Welbeck are fit and rested.”
