Aaron Ramsey is expected to be out for four weeks with a thigh injury, dealing another big blow to Arsenal’s chances of getting back into the Premier League title race.
“I would say four weeks,” Wenger said, dismissing speculation that the Wales international could be out for the season. “At the moment, his clinical signs are quite positive.”
Centre-back pairing Per Mertesacker and Gabriel Paulista also went off injured against Hull, but Wenger said both defenders should be available for Sunday’s FA Cup quarterfinal at home against Watford.
“I don’t think he lost too much fitness,” Wenger said about Gabriel. “I will have to make a decision tomorrow. At the moment my gut feeling is that he will join in [training] tomorrow and be completely available.”
