Liverpool Women's goalkeeper Fran Kitching had to miss out on the Reds' game against Bristol City on Sunday after revealing her horrific looking injury on Twitter.

On Twitter Kitching said, "So this happened in training on Tuesday hence why I'm not with the girl's for today's game...this has got to be the worst injury I've ever had as a goalkeeper but after a lot of swelling and pain (and looking like a cabbage patch doll) I can finally say I'm feeling a lot better and ready to get back out their with my girlies! I'm supporting them every minute from home. See ya back on the pitch soon."
