Beth Mead ruled out with MCL injury
Arsenal have confirmed Beth Mead has suffered an MCL injury and is expected to be back for selection later on in the season.
The England International was forced off after a collision of knees against Liverpool during the Gunners 3-2 win in Chester last Thursday.
An Arsenal statement read “Beth Mead sustained a knee injury during our Women’s Super League fixture against Liverpool and scans have since confirmed that she’s injured her MCL.
She has already started her rehabilitation with the club and is expected to be back and available for selection later in the season
Everyone at the club wishes Beth a speedy recovery”.
Mead has played 25 times this season scoring 8 goals in the process and has earned praise from international manager Phil Neville as he stated she was having her best ever season.
She joins Lia Wälti, Kim Little, Katrine Veje and Danielle Carter on the sidelines but Arsenal were boosted as Carter returned to training this week after a long layoff.
