INJURY NEWS: Arsenal to Miss 3 Key Players Against Manchester United.


This Sunday is the big game between Arsenal and Manchester United at Old Trafford. The Gunners got a 2-1 win there when they sent the Red Devils packing out of the FA Cup and in less than 72hours from now, they'll be hoping to repeat that feat.

Ahead of the clash, the boss has given a brief update on how the team will look like on Sunday. He revealed to us players who are getting close to full recovery and those who still have to wait for a longer period. Let us take a look at the latest Arsenal injury news.

The Frenchman started by stating that his squad has no new injuries recorded and also established the fact that no one will be making a return in our next Premier League game.

Danny Welbeck, according to some reports early this week was said to be fit enough to face his previous club but with the latest news from the boss, it's all lies. He is not yet ready.

"He’s short a fraction but is not far away", Wenger said. "I would love to have him available but we [may] have to do it without him.

Our Welsh magician, Aaron Ramsey has been struggling since picking up a knock against Hull City last week but he is going to be ready before Sunday.

"Aaron Ramsey is not in training yet but he should be better tomorrow", the 65-year-old stated. "I think he will be alright."

Mathieu Debuchy has been liberated from his hamstring problem. He resumed training on Wednesday after being sidelined for months. A comeback against Van Gaal's side will be too early. He should be ready for the FA Cup final if all goes well.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain?? Don't expect to see him at Old Trafford except if he is only going there to watch the game. The Arsenal boss had something to say about the English international.

"He will not play next week and after that there’s only one week to go for the cup final. I think he will be short but you never know.

"If he can be available for West Brom, maybe that’s the earliest he could be. It’s difficult to predict today."

Quizzed on whether the Ox's injury is as a result of inflammation in his groin, Wenger replied:

"No no. He has done his hamstring in training. No [he won't need surgery]."

We should expect to see a lineup similar to the ones we've made use of recently since there are no returning players against Manchester United.

Arsenal will have to win or at least get a point from Old Trafford to prevent United from going past them on the league table.
