Beth Mead Injury Not As Bad As First Feared

4

Arsenal have issued an injury update on forward Beth Mead after she was stretchered from the field of play during Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Everton on Sunday.

The England international was down for a total of 8 minutes and was carried from the field with her legs strapped during the first half after a seemingly innocuous challenge from Toffees defender Gabby George.

Beth published an Instagram story on Tuesday of herself laughing after the game, albeit sporting a crutch and a protective boot, with the caption, “Still smiling, nothing to (sic) serious, I’ll be back before you know it.”

The player went for an x-ray on Monday and Arsenal’s statement confirmed the injury was not a bad one, “Beth Mead is currently receiving treatment for bruising to her lower leg, sustained by a tackle in our fixture against Everton last weekend.

“An X-ray confirmed that there is no fracture and she will begin rehabilitation work to get her back to full fitness as soon as possible.”

The Gunners don’t play again until January 5th, but Mead has clocked up more minutes than any other Arsenal player so far this season. The club are likely to add attacking reinforcement in the January transfer window irrespective of this injury.

Good news. A key player. Luckily nothing broken and 3 weeks to recuperate.

That is excellent news. The fact that Beth was laughing and hopping around on crutches on the Southport pitch after the game gave those present the feeling that it was not going to be an repeat of Jordan’s last exit from this venue.
Attacking reinforcements? Cover for Viv perhaps….not an easy task!

Phew!!!
She’s not one for rolling around the floor so to see her out for the count and being carried off was a worry.
Glad Everton are moving home as we don’t want a player crippled every time we have to play them away.
Best wishes to Beth.
