Aaron Ramsey deemed fit for the Everton game
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Aaron Ramsey has returned to full fitness prior to Sunday's Premier League outing versus Everton. The Wales international missed last weekend's 2-1 defeat to Watford after Arsene Wenger rested him for what he termed as fatigue.
Prior to the Everton clash, Wenger revealed that the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Alexis Sanchez and Laurent Koscielny are back in contention, with the latter having recovered from a minor muscular problem sustained during the Hornets loss last weekend.
Other than this, Wenger confirmed that Danny Welbeck, David Ospina, Shkodran Mustafi and Calum Chambers would be side-lined until after the international break, he told the club's official website: "Alexis, Koscielny and Ramsey will be alright. Welbeck is out. He has a groin problem. I think it will be two to three weeks before he is back. He will not be back before the international break.
"Mustafi will not be back before the break, and [David] Ospina as well. Ospina is not very bad, he has a grade one [groin problem] so it's just a couple of weeks. Mustafi is a bit worse than Ospina. Calum Chambers as well will be back after the break, and everybody else is alright."
Mustafi played a key part for Arsenal in their unbeaten run in the month of September, and he is likely to prove the biggest loss for the Gunners, who face a tough trip to Manchester City in early November. Skipper Per Mertesacker and Rob Holding are capable of filling the void, but both are not blessed with pace when it comes to one on one situations.
Despite a slow start to the campaign, Arsenal are still on the cusp of the Champions League places, and a victory over Everton at Goodison Park would put them tied on points with Chelsea, who are presently fourth in the league standings
