Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has suffered a setback in his attempt to return to action, manager Arsene Wenger, has confirmed.

The Welsh midfielder has not featured for the North Londoners since 26 December because of a thigh strain.

He was expected to be out several weeks, but Wenger has said the 23-year-old faces some few more weeks on the sideline.

“Ramsey will be out for longer because he had a setback and it doesn’t look too good. It is matter of some weeks for him,” Wenger told the club’s official website.

On midfielder Jack Wilshere’s ankle problem, the Arsenal boss adds: “We have good news. For Sunday he will be short but he has a chance to be available for the week after at Liverpool.”

Meanwhile, the Gunners are also set to lose French midfielder Mathieu Flamini through suspension. Flamini, who was sent off for lunging into Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin with his two foot up on Tuesday, will miss Crystal Palace’s visit to the Emirate Stadium and two other key games against Liverpool (away) and Manchester City (home).

The good news is that Tomas Rosicky could return for the crystal Palace game.

“Not (any more ins and outs) from Southampton, we have no problems apart from Flamini who we lose through suspension,” Wenger added. “Everybody else should be available. We could have Rosicky back again for Sunday. He had problems after surgery on his nose. So we lose Flamini but we gain Rosicky.”
