Arsenal have suffered a major blow after midfield star Aaron Ramsey limped off with a twisted ankle during Wales' Euro 2016 qualifier game against Andorra.

The Wales star picked up the injury in the dying minutes of the game, and was replaced following treatment on the pitch.

Wales manager Chris Coleman has confirmed that Ramsey twisted his ankle, but is hopeful that he will be fit for Arsenal at the weekend.

"He got kick on his ankle and twisted it. Coming to the end of the game, we've got players with experience so it was pointless taking the risk. I won't do that with any of the players," Coleman said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"Hopefully he'll be okay for Arsenal at the weekend but we'll have to see what the next 24-48 hours holds," the former Fulham manager added.

Arsenal have some crucial fixtures coming up and it begins with Manchester City's visit to the Emirates on Saturday. They then travel to Germany to face Borussia Dortmund in the first game of the Champions League group stages.

Arsene Wenger will not be happy with losing one of his key players at a such a crucial point in the season.

Moreover, the Welshman is a vital cog in the Arsenal midfield and is also one of the form players, having scored two goals in three games this season.

But luckily, the blow will be softened by the return of Gunners captain Mikel Arteta, who could feature in the game against City after recovering from an ankle injury.
