WHAT THEY SAID: A statement released on Arsenal’s official website reads: “We can confirm that Kim Little will miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury. Kim sustained the injury in our UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-final win over Bayern Munich on 29 March and tests have subsequently confirmed that the injury will keep her sidelined for the remainder of the campaign. Our captain has already begun her rehabilitation and this process is progressing well. We expect her to be available for the start of preparations for the 2023-24 season. Our medical team will support Kim closely over the coming months and we look forward to see her back on the field of play soon.”

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Little is taking in a second spell with Arsenal, having rejoined the club in 2017, and has made over 100 appearances since linking back up with the Gunners.
