The Gunners fear that Ramsey would face six weeks out with the hamstring injury that forced him off during last night’s game against the Bavarians.
The Welsh international pulled up sharply in the 57th minute of the Champions League clash at the Emirates Stadium and Arsene Wenger confirmed the midfielder had suffered another muscle injury.
The midfielder had to be withdrawn in the second-half after pulling up while closing down a Bayern defender.
Ramsey will undergo a scan to confirm the extent of the damage but Arsenal fear he has suffered a Grade II tear, which typically has recovery time of four to six weeks, according to goal.com.
While Wenger didn’t put a time frame on Ramsey’s recovery, he confirmed the player will miss Saturday’s clash with Everton.
“He’s out [of the match against Everton], yes,” Wenger said.
Ramsey suffered three separate hamstring injuries last season which blighted his campaign and Wenger revealed the midfielder was “very down” about his latest setback.
Wenger said: “He’s alright but very down. He told me he injured his hamstring. It’s quite a tough one.”
The Welshman missed large spells of last season with hamstring problems but had cemented his place in the team in recent weeks.
Ramsey’s injury could open the door for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to start against Everton.
