Aston Villa Middlefield Injury and Suspension Details.

Updates on Kenza Dali, Kirsty Hanson, and Maz Pacheco are included in the most recent Aston Villa Women’s injuries and suspensions news.

Aston Villa lost heartbreakingly 2-1 to Manchester United at home on Sunday to begin their 2023–24 Women’s Super League campaign.

A goal from Rachel Daly in the second half was cancelled out by two goals from Lucia Garcia and Rachel Williams of United in the closing minutes. Carla Ward’s team had hoped to start the new season in a similar way to last year, when they edged Manchester City 4-3 at Villa Park.

Ward recently told the media that Kenza had a knock when he ret

urned from the World Cup. She is not accessible. Since the World Cup, she hasn’t been out on the practice field.

She is still in treatment. She won’t be here for at least a few weeks.

Another devastating setback for Villa came in the form of winger Kirsty Hanson’s straight red card versus United in the second half for a high foot on Hayley Ladd. A three-match suspension is given automatically for a straight red for serious misconduct.

Hanson is therefore anticipated to miss their next three games against Liverpool, Arsenal, and Tottenham before the international break in October. She’ll probably come back at the start of November for Chelsea’s WSL visit.

Defender Maz Pacheco was another noticeable omission from the starting lineup versus United. Although she didn’t play on Sunday, the fact that she was at least included in the squad should signal a potential return as soon as Liverpool.

Ward stated last week that “Maz Pacheco is a major doubt [for United]”. “She has caught the terrifying bug that has been going around. She’s extremely unlikely to appear.

Even though the 23/24 season has only had one game played, Villa manager Carla Ward already has to deal with injuries and bans in their forthcoming games, starting with a trip to Prenton Park to play Liverpool this weekend.
