Ramsey returned to light training on Tuesday and took part in Thursday’s session, having missed out on the final two games of pre-season for Arsenal. Now it is believed that he will be able to line-up for the club this weekend.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles is expected to feature at left-back on Sunday, with Nacho Monreal a doubt, and Sead Kolasinac definitely out.
