Blow as Arsenal confirm key midfielder to miss remainder of the season ahead of season defining game

The team received unfortunate news that their captain, Kim Little, will not be able to play for the rest of the season due to injury.

This is a significant setback for Jonas Eidevall’s squad as Little will be absent for several important Women’s Super League matches, including the Champions League semi-final games against Wolfsburg later this month.

During Arsenal’s recent UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-final victory over Bayern Munich at the Emirates, the 32-year-old midfielder suffered an injury.

The club has announced that subsequent tests revealed she has injured her hamstring, which will prevent her from playing for the rest of the season.

The Swedish coach, Jonas Eidevall, and his team have had a difficult time with injuries this season. The loss of captain Kim Little due to a hamstring injury will be another setback for the team, especially after already losing forwards Beth Mead and Vivianne Miedema earlier in the season due to ACL injuries.

He is also without midfielder Lia Wälti after the Switzerland star confirmed she was taking a “short personal break” last week, adding “the last weeks and months have been difficult, and mentally and psychologically exhausting.”

On Wednesday, Arsenal will face Manchester United in a crucial game that could define their season. The match is significant because both teams are contenders for the title, making it one of the most fascinating races in the history of the Women’s Super League.
