Beth Mead: Arsenal & England forward out with anterior cruciate ligament injury

England forward Beth Mead will be out for "an extended period" after suffering a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament, her club Arsenal said.

Mead, 27, sustained the injury late in Saturday's Women's Super League loss to Manchester United at Emirates Stadium.

She will see a surgeon in the coming days, after which further details on timescales will be established.
