Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey, Danny Welbeck may miss Swansea clash

Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck are both doubts for Arsenal's Premier League game against Swansea on Monday.

Ramsey was forced off on 68 minutes during this week's 3-1 win at Hull after taking a knock and was replaced by Jack Wilshere, who was making his first appearance since November following an ankle problem.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that the Wales international is recovering well but was unable to confirm if he would be fit to feature on Monday.

"From the Hull match we had Ramsey who took a big kick, he is getting slowly better," Wenger told Arsenal's official website. "He could be back in training soon."

Wenger went on to reveal that Welbeck is also a doubt for the Swansea clash due to a knee problem.

The England international, who has yet to return to training, was forced to miss Monday's trip to Hull due to the injury.

"Welbeck is doing better but he is still not in training. He has missed now more than a week," Wenger said. "There is no major damage but we have to see how it progresses over the next two or three days."

Wenger also confirmed that Mathieu Debuchy is unavailable to face Swansea due to a hamstring injury but is progressing well, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mikel Arteta will both also miss out due to hamstring and ankle problems respectively.
