Arsene Wenger has confirmed the two midfielders are not ready to return as hoped following the international break but has his young right-back available after injury
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Aaron Ramsey will miss Arsenal’s trip to West Brom on Saturday as they remain unavailable due to injury, but Hector Bellerin could return.
Ramsey picked up a hamstring problem in Arsenal’s win over Bayern Munich on October 20, while Oxlade-Chamberlain sustained a thigh problem in last month’s League Cup loss to Sheffield Wednesday.
Arsenal were initially hopeful both would be able to make their comeback after the international break, but Arsene Wenger has confirmed they are not ready.
“Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ramsey are not available yet,” the Arsenal boss said at a news conference. “Bellerin is back and can play on Saturday.
West Brom have registered just two wins in their 18 Premier League meetings with Arsenal, but Wenger has warned his side against complacency.
“They are an organised team,” he added. “Tony Pulis is fully committed. You expect a physical and fast game.”
