Beth Mead ‘heartbroken’ after suffering ACL injury in Arsenal defeat

Arsenal and England forward Beth Mead is “heartbroken” after suffering a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament during Saturday’s Women’s Super League loss to Manchester United.

Arsenal said Mead “is set for an extended period on the sidelines” after confirming the extent of her injury, and will set out a timetable for surgery in the coming days.

The 27-year-old wrote on her Twitter feed: “Obviously heartbroken by the news of my injury, unfortunately these things are part of the game."
