Arsenal and England have been dealt a huge blow this week with the news that Jordan Nobbs has sustained a long term injury.
The 25-year-old midfielder left the field on a stretcher seven minutes from time during the Gunners' 4-0 win over Everton on Sunday. Nobbs, arguably playing the best football of her career in recent months, had already scored her ninth league goal of the season and set up the final goal for Vivianne Miedema to seal a result which saw Arsenal become the first team to win their first eight league matches of the season since the formation of the FA WSL in 2011.
It was confirmed two days later that Nobbs had picked up an ACL injury which looks likely to rule her out of the rest of the season and probably the World Cup as well. Arsenal released the following statement about the injury:
"Jordan Nobbs picked up a knee injury during our 4-0 win against Everton this weekend.
"Following scans this morning, we can confirm that Jordan has suffered an ACL rupture in her left knee and she is now receiving specialist care.
"Everyone at the club wishes Jordan a speedy recovery and will give their full support in her journey back to full fitness."
This is the second time in as many months that Arsenal have lost their captain and key player to injury, after Kim Little sustained a leg fracture during their 5-0 victory over Chelsea.
On the news of her injury, she tweeted that she is "heartbroken right now" but "truly overwhelmed" by the messages and support she has received this week.
