Arsenal’s Jordan Nobbs has been confirmed as having sustained an ACL rupture in her left knee in Sunday’s FAWSL win away to Everton.

The injury came from a seemingly innocuous tackle she made, which resulted in her being given oxygen on the pitch and stretchered off.

With the Gunners already hit hard by injuries, it is a further test of the depth of the league leaders’ squad, not to mention a blow to the Lionesses’ World Cup preparations.

Arsenal go in search of their ninth straight win on Sunday at home to Brighton and have a massive match away to Manchester City a week later.
