Arsenal have confirmed that captain Kim Little has undergone surgery on a foot injury and will return ‘later in the season.’ The full details are not yet known, but Little missed the recent 2-1 defeat to Manchester City along with Lia Wälti.
Wälti has not travelled for tonight’s WSL game against Liverpool and neither will Kim, with Jill Roord suspended, it means Leah Williamson will likely come into midfield.
A statement on the Arsenal website read, “Kim Little has undergone successful surgery on a foot injury and is expected to be back and available for selection later in the season. Everyone at the club is wishing Kim a speedy return.”
While a blow to lose Kim, Arsenal are well covered in this part of the pitch with Jordan Nobbs, Danielle van de Donk and Jill Roord to call on.
