Hull City 0-4 Arsenal highlights

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is concerned by the injury Aaron Ramsey suffered in the 4-0 FA Cup win at Hull.

Midfielder Ramsey, set to play a key role for Wales at Euro 2016 this summer, was replaced 16 minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute.

Arsenal have Laurent Koscielny out and fellow centre-backs Per Mertesacker and Gabriel also picked up injuries.

“The most serious looks to be Ramsey. I think it’s a thigh strain,” said Wenger.

Mertesacker was involved in a clash of heads with Hull midfielder Nick Powell as holders Arsenal won the fifth-round replay to book a home quarter-final against Watford on Sunday.

“Mertesacker is just a cut on his eye – that looks to be very short term,” added Wenger. “Gabriel is a hamstring.”

Two goals each from France striker Olivier Giroud and England forward Theo Walcott secured Arsenal’s first win in six games.

That run has included a 2-0 Champions League last-16 first-leg defeat by Barcelona and Premier League losses to Manchester United and Swansea.

Against Hull, some Gunners fans held up a banner reading “Arsene, thanks for the memories but it’s time to say goodbye”.

Wenger said: “There’s nothing disappointing for me – I do my job.

“Look at the history of the club, since the club exists, and you will see that I have nothing to be scared of.”
