Arsene Wenger has confirmed Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey will be out for several more weeks as Arsenal will give them time to build up fitness.

Giroud has been struggling with a toe injury in recent weeks, while Ramsey has been out of action since picking up an injury in the Gunners’ opening game of the season.
And Wenger has confirmed the pair will not be back in contention for some time.
“Giroud will not be available. Ramsey will not be available,” the manager said ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Swansea.

“I’m disappointed because Ramsey has worked very hard and he had a few little setbacks that forced us to be cautious with him.
“He’s on the last stage, he’s building up his fitness. Next week will come too early for him.
“We have decided that we will give him a complete pre-season now, even if he misses more games. Giroud will be the same. We have to build his fitness up again.”
