Team news: Giroud, Ramsey and Monreal

Nacho Monreal, Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey were the three players who went into Christmas nursing injuries - on top of long-term absentee Santi Cazorla.

When will that trio be back? We’ve got the latest from Arsene Wenger:

on the latest team news…
Nacho Monreal is out of course because he got injured [against Liverpool], Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey are out as well and that’s basically it.

on the timeframes…
Nacho Monreal I would say hopefully 10 days, Giroud as I said before is four to six weeks, but he is a quick healer so I am hopeful he will be less. Aaron Ramsey should be back at the beginning of January.

on whether he will replace the injured Giroud…
No, Olivier Giroud will be back in January.

on his timeframe…
Yes I said four to six weeks, but the incident happened on the 10th of December, so the 10th of January or 15th he should hopefully be back.
