Arsenal have confirmed the worst possible news – Jordan Nobbs has suffered an ACL rupture and will now be sidelined for an extensive period of time.

A statement from Arsenal read, “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.”

As the game was petering out, Nobbs went into a tackle with former Arsenal player, Chloe Kelly, and came out in a heap as her knee joint seemed to twist.

Nobbs was then spotted leaving Everton using crutches with her leg in a brace.

Her loss is a massive blow for Arsenal who are now going to have to do without one of the most vital cogs in Joe Montemurro’s side at a time when they are already without a number of other big names.
