Arsenal did not come through today's 2-0 win and 5-0 aggregate win against Fenerbahce without some bittersweet tang to their celebrations, as Lukas Podolski will miss three weeks with a hamstring injury:

Obviously this is pretty bad news for an already-thin Arsenal attack, who are missing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for a long time already. Hopefully it is just a strain and no further damage rears its ugly head as the club learn more in the next couple of days.
Wenger: "Jack should be alright for Sunday" #AFCvFEN— Arsenal.com (@Arsenal) August 27, 2013
Although Ramsey's injury is a little less clear:
Wenger: "I don't know how bad Ramsey is. I don't know how will Wilshere will react. He looks alright" #AFCvFEN— Arsenal.com (@Arsenal) August 27, 2013
We'll keep you posted as we learn more. If for some reason Wilshere and Ramsey both can't go on Sunday, well...we'll keep you posted. Sigh.
