Liverpool women's GK Kitching suffers horror facial injury in training

Liverpool ladies goalkeeper Fran Kitching has said she is feeling better after suffering a horror facial injury in training last week.

Kitching, 21, was forced to miss Liverpool's first WSL win of the season on Sunday because of the injury.

In an Instagram post on Sunday evening, Kitching said the cut to the head was "the worst injury I've ever had," and jokingly compared herself to Harry Potter.

"So this happened in training on Tuesday hence why I'm not with the girls for today's game," Kitching said. "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 there with my girlies!

"I'm supporting them every minute from home. See ya back on the pitch soon - love from Fran aka HP (For now) BRB."

Liverpool moved off the bottom of the WSL on Sunday after beating Bristol City 1-0.
