It was unclear how long Beth Mead would be out for when it was confirmed she was going to need x-rays following a Gabby George challenge on the same pitch that saw Jordan Nobbs do her ACL.

Thankfully, although we still don’t know the extent of the problem, Mead has confirmed she should be ‘back before you know it’.

Speaking after the Everton game, Arsenal’s assistant manager, Aaron D’Antino, who has been in charge for the last few games alongside Leanne Hall while Joe Montemurro is in Australia for personal reasons, said “She is ok, we will find out tomorrow [Monday], we do not know the severity of it.

“She will get an x-ray and we will assess it after that once we know a bit more.”

Arsenal don’t play again until 5 January when they face Birmingham City at Meadow Park.
