Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is a big doubt for the rest of the season following the injury that he sustained during the Europa League quarterfinal second leg clash with Napoli on Thursday night.

The Welsh international player was subbed off for Armenian player Henrikh Mkhitaryan after he suffered a hamstring injury.

Ramsey played for just 34 minutes before his exit as Arsenal booked their spot in the final four of this year’s Europa League.

The former Cardiff City midfielder made a telling contribution in the first leg when he scored the opening goal in the first leg against Napoli which the Gunners won 2-0.

Ramsey gave Arsenal the lead at the Emirates Stadium in the 15th minute before an own goal from Kalidou Koulibaly wrapped up the win for the hosts.

On the injury to Ramsey, Arsenal manager Unai Emery told reporters that it’s serious before adding that the midfielder is a doubt for the remainder of the season.

Without Ramsey on the pitch, Arsenal defeated Napoli for the second time in two days after Alexandre Lacazette scored a fine freekick in the 36th minute to give the Gunners a 1-0 win in the second leg and a 3-0 aggregate win.

Arsenal will now face Spanish club Valencia in the last four of the Europa League.
