Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has disclosed wore worrying injury news for Gunners fans ahead of Sunday's trip to face Everton at Goodison Park, with Kieran Gibbs and Serge Gnabry both struggling for full fitness ahead of the crunch clash.

The Gunners have endured a miserable 2014 in terms of consistently losing star players through injury, including Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny all still on the sidelines nursing long-term knocks.

Wenger is still unable to call upon that quartet of established first-team regulars and now has fresh injury issues to contend with before a match on Merseyside with potentially massive implications, as Everton look to steal fourth place and the final Champions League place by finishing the season in style.

In his pre-match press conference for the Everton game Wenger shared that Gibbs has still not managed to shake a persistent ankle problem which continues to be a source of frustration, while Gnabry is a new doubt with a knee injury.

There is light at the end of tunnel though for Gunners fans in terms of injury news, with Aaron Ramsey back in the squad due on Merseyside this weekend after more than three months out with a persistent thigh complaint.

Arsenal desperately need the Welsh midfield maestro to be fit and firing quickly as they head into a pivotal fortnight of a campaign has lurched from one extreme to the next, particularly with an FA Cup semi-final against Wigan Athletic looming large next Saturday.

Ramsey is still Arsenal's second top goalscorer in the Premier League with eight, showing that star striker Olivier Giroud is in desperate need of support from midfield as Wenger's men bid to get Champions League qualification effectively wrapped up with victory over the Toffees.
