Ramsey to miss Qarabag clash due to his wife expecting their first child

Arsenal are without Aaron Ramsey for the Europa League clash with Qarabag.

Ramsey, who is set to leave the club next summer or in January after contract talks were ended by the club, has remained in London rather than travel to Azerbaijan.

Speaking at his press conference on Wednesday, Gunners boss Unai Emery confirmed Ramsey asked to be left out.

“Aaron asked me if he could stay in London because he wife is pregnant and they are waiting [for her to give birth],” revealed the Arsenal chief.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has also remained at home amid ongoing tensions between Azerbaijan and Armenia.

On the ex-Borussia Dortmund man's absence, Emery added: "He can’t travel here.

“We are here with the players with the best preparation to play them tomorrow.

“My work is football. I respect each person, each culture, each country, but I don’t know each situation in every country.

“For me, he can’t play tomorrow and I have respect for Micky."
