ARSENAL boss Arsene Wenger has revealed Aaron Ramsey suffered a hamstring injury against Southampton.
Ramsey played the full 90 as Arsenal snatched a late draw against the Saints.
But the Welshman hobbled through the last few minutes and after the match Wenger confirmed the midfielder had an injury.
Ramsey is now a major doubt for Wednesday's clash with West Ham and a busy period of fixtures.
And it means Jack Wilshere could get a run in the team after failing to start a league game this season.
Wenger said: "Aaron Ramsey couldn't play at the end. He had a hamstring problem."
