Leah Williamson injury: What impact will her absence have on Arsenal and the Lionesses?

 England captain Leah Williamson is set to miss this summer's Women's World Cup after suffering a ruptured ACL in Arsenal's defeat at Man Utd on Wednesday.

Williamson was taken off after collapsing to the ground only 12 minutes into Arsenal's 1-0 loss at Leigh Sports Village, with her knee appearing to be the source of her discomfort.

The 26-year-old issued a statement on social media and has asked for time and space to digest the news.

"Until I have the words to express my feelings properly, I will struggle to verbalise them," Williamson wrote. "The noise around the situation is loud and I need some quiet to let it all sink in. "Unfortunately the World Cup and Champions League dream is over for me and everyone will think that’s the main focus, but it’s the day-to-day of what I’m about to go through that is the most draining of my thoughts.
