Liverpool striker Leanne Kiernan is set to be sidelined for months due to the ankle injury she suffered in the club’s shock win over Chelsea on Sunday.

The Reds came from 1-0 down to beat the defending Women’s Super League champions 2-1 in a game where all the goals were penalties. Kiernan was sent off in the second half after a tackle from Blues’ Kadeisha Buchanan.

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

“But these things happen in football, we have a team to deal with these things and great medical staff to get Leanne back to full fitness when she’s ready.”

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

Newly-promoted Liverpool shocked Chelsea, but Blues manager Emma Hayes was realistic about her side’s poor post-game performance.

She told Sky: “First of all, congratulations to Liverpool. They’ve done their game plan well. We knew for Campbell’s long throw. The second penalty, we should defend it better. I thought at the “future, we weren’t good enough. Nothing went where it was supposed to go. We’re disappointed but we’re going.”

“They play a 5-4-1 and they don’t go out. They maximized the opportunities. We couldn’t hit a barn door today.

“We fear and leave. I say it all the time, what is it to worry about losing a football game.”

Chelsea take on Manchester City, while Liverpool take on Everton this weekend.
