Arsene Wenger has given his team news ahead of this weekend’s match with Newcastle United and confirmed the extent of Aaron Ramsey’s injury (via Arsenal.com).
Arsenal return to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday as they welcome struggling Newcastle United to North London.
The Gunners haven’t had the best of time of late and have failed to win their last three Premier League matches but have another chance on the weekend.
Now, Arsene Wenger has given his team news ahead of the clash.

“Mustafi is back in training today,” Wenger confirmed in his pre-match press conference.
“I don’t know if I will include him tomorrow, it’s still a little gamble and apart from that we will have to see how everybody recovers.
“We’ll see today in training, but we have no basic problem.
“Of course Aaron Ramsey will not be available. I said that he will be out for a little longer and that will be maybe three weeks that he is not in contention.”
So, Aaron Ramsey has been ruled out for the dreaded three weeks by Arsene Wenger. That means the Welshman will miss the busy festive period including the club’s matches against Chelsea and Liverpool. Let’s hope the Gunners have enough in the rest of the squad to get by.
