Aaron Ramsey has insisted he will be "all right" to play in Arsenal’s crunch clash with Manchester City on Saturday.

The Arsenal star sparked fears among Gunners supporters after appearing to twist his ankle in the final minutes of Wales’ 2-1 Euro 2016 qualifying win against Andorra.

Ramsey limped off the much-criticised artificial pitch but now says he should be fine to play at the Emirates on Saturday lunchtime.

"I’ll be all right – the pitch was very hard there’s no give in it so I rolled my ankle a bit," said Ramsey.

"Hopefully it will be nothing and I’ll be available for Saturday. These are the games you want to play in and I’m looking forward to it."

Arsenal already have a lengthy injury list with Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry definitely missing and Mesut Ozil facing a fight for fitness.
