Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that midfielder Aaron Ramsey will be out of action for another six weeks, reports the Guardian.
Ramsey hasn't featured for the Gunners since Boxing Day when he picked up an injury against West Ham United.
And now he's suffered another setback in his bid to get fit as Wenger has revealed that he will spend a lengthy period on the sidelines.
Reported by the club's official Twitter account, Wenger said: "Aaron Ramsey will be out for four to six weeks. I count six weeks."
Ramsey was in fine form for the north London outfit throughout the first half of the campaign and this latest setback will come as a blow to Arsenal as they go in search of Premier League glory this season. The Gunners are currently in second place in the table and trail leaders Manchester City by one point.
Without Ramsey, Arsenal will take on Crystal Palace on Sunday and will be desperate to secure all three points against Tony Pulis' side.
