Wenger had been hopeful last week that Ramsey could return from a long-term thigh problem to face Tottenham, but the Welshman has yet to recover fully from the injury.

The news is a blow for Wenger as he is already missing Jack Wilshere with a broken foot, while Mesut Ozil faces a spell on the sidelines after suffering a hamstring injury in the midweek Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich.

"We have had to defer his comeback to full training a little so he is not available," Wenger told the club's official website. "He is having difficulties in the final stages of his rehab. It looks to be short-term."

Wenger is still waiting to find out the full extent of Ozil's injury to determine how long he will be missing the German playmaker.

"He is out. I don't know for how long but it is a hamstring injury. There are scans going on," added Wenger.

However, Wenger is hopeful Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal will be fit enough to return to the squad after being forced to play Thomas Vermaelen at left-back against Bayern Munich.

"Kieran Gibbs has a test tomorrow but I am hopeful that Nacho Monreal will be fit. They both have a good chance," noted Wenger.

January signing Kim Kallstrom could be included in the squad for the first time after recovering from a back injury and striker Yaya Sanogo is back in training after missing the Bayern defeat with a knock.

"Kallstrom joins the normal training group today and Sanogo too," continued Wenger.

"I will have to decide if Kallstrom is OK to be in the squad on Sunday. I will see how he looks, it is not impossible."

The great sport keeps coming during Magnificent March. Here are some of the highlights you can enjoy with Sky Sports.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
