Arsenal injury list: Jack Wilshere will miss Manchester United clash, but Aaron Ramsey is back to face QPR on Wednesday

Wenger also revealed that Flamini will miss at least the next two matches

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had good news and bad news on the injury front, as Arsenal prepare for crucial clashes in the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

The French manager, whose team face QPR on Wednesday, Manchester United next Monday and travel to Monaco on 17 March, revealed that although Aaron Ramsey will return to play for the first time in nearly a month, Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Flamini remain sidelined.

Third in the Premier League after their win over Everton, Arsenal will hope to continue their push for next season's Champions League at Loftus Road.

Welsh midfielder Ramsey, who has not played since the win against Leicester on 10 February because of a hamstring problem, will be back for the game, but may start from the bench.

"Aaron Ramsey is back in the squad," Wenger said at his press conference.

On Wilshere he said that the England international is "doing well", but will miss the game at Loftus Road and the visit to Manchester United in the quarter-final of the FA Cup next Monday,

"It takes some time to heal the wound after the surgery - it will take his a few days. I don't set any dates, but what is for sure is that for Man United he will not be available."

Wenger added: "Mathieu Flamini is not far away but not close enough. I think he will miss the next two games."

Another concern is emerging talent Francis Coquelin, who had to be replaced in the 2-0 win against Everton, but Wenger said he should be fine.

"We have to check with the medical people this morning in training to see whether he’ll be available or not, but there’s no obvious reason why he should not be available."

Abou DIaby, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Debuchy remain out.
