Liverpool forward Leanne Kiernan is expected to be sidelined for months with the ankle injury he sustained in the club’s surprise win over Chelsea on Sunday.

The Reds came back from a 1-0 deficit to beat the reigning Women’s Superliga champions 2-1 in a match where all goals were scored on penalties. Kiernan was sent off in the second half after a challenge by Kadeisha Buchanan of the Blues.

“Obviously it’s very disappointing for Leanne and the rest of the squad because she’s had a great pre-season and is in great shape,” said Liverpool manager Matt Beard.

“But these things happen in football, we have a team to handle these things and an excellent medical team to get Leanne back in great shape when she’s ready.”

And the Republic of Ireland international, who may need surgery, added: “Thanks to all the fans who reached out to me, your support means a lot. I look forward to getting back there as soon as possible. See you soon.”

Newly promoted Liverpool shocked Chelsea, but Blues manager Emma Hayes was realistic about her team’s poor performance after the match.

She told Sky: “First congratulations to Liverpool. They did their game plan well. We knew about Campbell’s long throw. The second penalty we must defend it better. I thought from now on we weren’t good enough. Nothing went where it was supposed to go. We are disappointed, but let’s go.

“They play a 5-4-1 and don’t leave. They maximized the opportunities. We couldn’t knock on the barn door today.

“We erase and go again. I say that all the time, what it’s like to worry about missing a football match.”

Chelsea face Manchester City, while Liverpool face Everton this weekend.
