Arsenal boss Wenger's fears mount for Aaron Ramsey
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is not too worried about injuries suffered by defensive duo Per Mertesacker and Gabriel at Hull - but admits he is concerned about Aaron Ramsey's condition.
The centre-backs were withdrawn during the Gunners' 4-0 FA Cup victory at the KC Stadium, with Mertesacker suffering concussion in a clash of heads with Nick Powell while Gabriel was taken off following an aerial challenge.
Ramsey lasted 19 minutes as Gabriel's replacement - the Welsh ace limped off to give Wenger more cause for concern ahead of a Champions League meeting with Barcelona and a tricky Premier League run-in.
After braces from Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott fired his team into the last eight, Wenger said: "Mertesacker is not serious, just a little concussion, and I think Gabriel looks all right but I am concerned for Ramsey.
"It's a thigh injury... but apart from that we have played well."
Cup holders Arsenal now face Watford in the quarter-finals.
Wenger added: "They are a good side and it will be a very interesting tie. Let's see if we can recover one or two injuries and keep playing the way we played."
