According to ITV, Aaron Ramsey will not travel with Wales to take part in the China Cup during the upcoming international break. The midfielder will instead go through a “small procedure” as Wales manager Ryan Giggs explained, and added that this would be a good moment for Ramsey to get it done.
He will, however, be in the squad for the rematch against AC Milan in the Europa League, and the procedure will be performed afterwards. It remains unclear what exactly the small procedure is. .......Read more here.....

I have to say I was shocked by Arsenal’s 2-0 win over AC Milan in the first leg of the last 16 of the Europa League on Thursday night. The Italian giants head into the game in decent form, while morale was low in the Gunners camp.
However, first-half goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey gave the Gunners a very healthy lead for the second leg.
Last chance to make the Champions League
Winning the Europa League is Arsenal’s last chance of getting into the Champions League for next season. The top-four seem too far ahead in the Premier League, so Europe’s secondary competition has suddenly taken on huge significance for the Gunners season. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a 2-0 win at AC Milan on Thursday night in the first leg of the last 16 of the Europa League.
The first real attempt on goal arrived on eight minutes and it fell for the visitors. Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan hit an effort against the side netting after a good ball from Mesut Ozil.
The home side threatened two minutes later, as striker Cutrone poked into the side netting with an early effort. On 12 minutes, Calhanoglu was released through on goal, only for Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina to appear to bring the Turkish star down in the penalty area. The midfielder stayed on his feet, though and the referee did not point to the spot. .......Read more here.....

As reported by Metro, Hector Bellerin and Aaron Ramsey will be making their return to the starting XI tomorrow night in what can only be described as a season-defining game against AC Milan.
The Gunners head into this two-legged tie off the back of four consecutive defeats, knowing that an exit from the Europa League would likely sign the death warrant on Arsene Wenger’s two-decade tenure as manager. It’ll be all hands on deck during the first leg to ensure that they get off to a flying start, as the Frenchman attempts to win European silverware for the first time with the club. .......Read more here.....

Jamie Redknapp has claimed that Aaron Ramsey will be key for Arsenal against Manchester City if the Welsh international can prove his fitness before the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.
Arsenal fell to an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Ostersunds on Thursday as they limped through to the next stage of the Europa League.
The Gunners held a 3-0 advantage after the first-leg in Sweden, but this lead was almost entirely wiped out after a very quick start from Ostersunds. Two goals inside the first-half had their hosts on the rope before Sead Kolasinac scored to make it 4-2 on aggregate. .......Read more here.....

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that two key players will miss the London side’s Europa League second-leg against Ostersunds with the Premier League club holding a 3-0 lead following the first-leg.
Arsenal have been enduring a tough season as their Premier League campaign threatens to once again end without any Champions League football.
The London side are currently seven points short of Tottenham in fifth and eight behind Chelsea in fourth. With the top-four so hotly contested this season, Arsene Wenger’s men could not afford to lose ground on those above them. .......Read more here.....

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal may be forced to sell forward Danny Welbeck and midfielder Aaron Ramsey in the summer. Both players’ contracts have just 18 months left to run.
The fact that German playmaker Mesut Ozil recently signed a deal worth £350,000 per week has led to fears that the new wage structure within the club may cause rifts within the squad.
Avoid mistakes of the past
Arsenal are keen to keep Ramsey. They have opened talks with the Welsh international over a new deal with the club. However, the midfielder is currently on £110,000 per week. He is likely to demand a big pay rise, especially after the recent change in the clubs wage structure. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal struggled to make an impact on the West Ham goal in Wednesday night’s goalless draw. One of the few positives of the Gunners display was a decent display from central midfielder Jack Wilshere.
The England international was making his first Premier League start of the campaign after making all his starts this season in the League Cup and Europa League. It was, in fact, Wilshere’s first league appearance for Arsenal since May 2016 due to a loan spell at Bournemouth last season. .......Read more here.....

On Wednesday night, Arsenal travel the short distance to West Ham’s London Stadium for a midweek Premier League clash.
The home side will be heading into the clash in good spirits, following a 1-0 home win against reigning champions Chelsea last time out. The win means the Irons moved up to 18th place in the table.
David Moyes’ side are now only in the relegation zone on goal difference. With 17th place West Brom facing a difficult game at Liverpool, anything from this match would move the Hammers out of the drop zone. .......Read more here.....

It was the same old story for Arsenal against Southampton on Sunday as they were held to a 1-1 draw by their hosts. The stalemate means that the Gunners are 14 points short of leaders Manchester City having played a game more, which has pretty much brought an end to their slim title hopes.
The game itself was a direct antithesis to their loss against Manchester United last weekend. Arsenal created a huge amount of chances only to be stopped on the line by the marvellous David de Gea. On Sunday, Arsenal were not able to be toothless with their finishing as they rarely threatened to open their opponents up. .......Read more here.....
