Arsene Wenger has revealed that Aaron Ramsey was “very down” after the Arsenal midfielder suffered a hamstring injury during Tuesday night’s Champions League win over Bayern Munich.

The Wales international pulled up in the second half with a suspected muscular tear and was replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the 57th minute at Emirates Stadium.

And Wenger has revealed that the 24-year-old is set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering the problem.

Wenger told his post-match news conference: “He [Ramsey] is alright but very down because he told me that his hamstring is quite a tough one. He is out.”

The Arsenal boss also admitted that Alexis Sanchez had been struggling with fatigue during the game after a busy few days for Arsenal’s talismanic Chile international.

The Gunners manager continued: “Alexis, you could see he was a bit jaded physically tonight and he still pushes himself so much but he finished exhausted.

“The two games with Chile, plus travelling, plus Watford, plus tonight, it is too much.”
