Niamh Fahey and Mia Enderby will undergo scans on the injuries they picked up during Wednesday’s friendly against Manchester United Women.

Liverpool FC Women captain Fahey was forced off with a calf problem and Enderby suffered a shoulder issue during the 3-1 defeat at Carrington.

Manager Matt Beard told Liverpoolfc.com: “Unfortunately for Niamh it’s the same calf problem she had before the World Cup.

“She will have a scan on Friday so we will know the extent of it then, but Niamh felt it pull so that’s not a good sign.

“Mia landed on her shoulder awkwardly so she is in a bit of discomfort. Hopefully that settles down in the next 24 hours and again, we will know more on Mia on Friday.”

Beard also provided a fitness update on forwards Leanne Kiernan, Shanice van de Sanden and Melissa Lawley, who is ahead of schedule following her hip operation.

He added: “Leanne had an injection the week before last and she is back running. She still has got a little bit of pain but is progressing.

“Shanice, unfortunately, still has pain in her foot so we are still waiting on her.

“Mel is doing really well and should be back in training with the team on Friday for a little bit, but it will be a gradual build-up for her.

“Hopefully post-Arsenal or maybe for Arsenal, I don’t know at this stage, she might be available for the squad. But I would probably say Mel is ahead of Shanice and Leanne at the moment.”
