Former Cardiff City midfielder Aaron Ramsey is unlikely to feature for his new club Arsenal when the two sides meet in the FA Cup replay non Monday. After picking up a knee injury.

Ramsey went down heavily in the second half of Wales 1-0 defeat to Poland having come on at half time. After a few seconds in considerable pain, Ramsey recovered and continued but initial synopsis on the injury suggests he may need 2 weeks before playing again.

Ramsey started the game at Ninian Park but was incredibly subdued and ineffective playing far too deep and unable to penetrate as Bluebirds` fans know he can

With playmaker Cesc Fabregas out injured, Abou Diaby and Rosicky with hamstring problems, and new signing Andrey Arshavin ineligible – Arsenal will struggle for midfield options and attacking threat but will still provide an incredibly stern test for Cardiff City.

Gunners` boss Arsene Wenger did not seem too happy about Rambo`s injury:

“From what I heard he has stretched his medial knee ligament. It is hard to tell anything when you have not seen the player yet.”

Whilst it is never nice to see a young Welsh talent injured, Ramsey should not be out for long and his absence is surely good news for Cardiff City fans.

  • Could be wrong here but Arshavin isn’t inelligable and we should see his debut against you lot. Will be interesting

  • Sorry to disappoint Mr Scooch but you are wrong. Arshavin was not an Arsenal player on date of the initial cup game and is therefore ineligible for the replay. Definitely.

  • Yep that makes sense. What do I know anyway. Reckon you guuys have got a decent chance against us, Christ I hope not!
