Ramsey could miss Man City game due to injury

BY NATALI IVERSON - SEPTEMBER 10, 2014

Arsenal midfielder, Aaron Ramsey, could miss his side’s forthcoming Barclays Premier League bout against Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, after sustaining an ankle injury while playing an international match for Wales on Tuesday.

Ramsey twisted his ankle in the last minutes of his side’s opening Euro 2016 qualifying game against Andorra, which the Dragons won 2-1.

"He got a kick and there was a twist in his ankle," Wales manager Chris Coleman said.

"Hopefully he'll be OK for Arsenal at the weekend, but we'll have to see what the next 24 to 48 hours hold."

Ramsey has said that his injury was due to the artificial 3G pitch, which was used to play Tuesday’s game.

"I'll be all right - the pitch was very hard - there's no give in it so I rolled my ankle a bit," said Ramsey.

"Hopefully it will be nothing and I'll be available for Saturday. These are the games you want to play in and I'm looking forward to it."
