Arsene Wenger says he is “a bit under shock” after losing three Arsenal players to injury on Tuesday, including Aaron Ramsey.

The Gunners beat Hull 4-0 in an FA Cup fifth-round replay to set up a quarter-final clash with Watford this weekend.

Wenger, who also discussed a negative banner unfurled by fans during the match, was “shocked” after Arsenal suffered three injuries at the KC Stadium.

Defenders Per Mertesacker and Gabriel were removed in the 33rd and 57th minute, with the latter’s replacement, Ramsey, himself being substituted in the 73rd minute, all through injury.

“I’m a bit under shock there because we lost our two centre-backs in the game and after we lost Aaron Ramsey,” Wenger told BT Sport.

“Mertesacker is just a cut on his eye and looks to be very short,” he later told a news conference. “Gabriel is a hamstring and Ramsey is a thigh problem. To me, the most serious looks to be Ramsey. He has a thigh problem, I think it is a thigh strain.”
