Aston Villa and England midfielder Lucy Staniforth has been ruled out for the reason with an ankle injury.
She will have surgery on Wednesday after suffering the injury warming up for the win at Sunderland last week.
Villa midfielder Laura Blindkilde Brown joined Manchester City on transfer deadline day on Wednesday.
“Lucy Staniforth and Laura Blindkilde Brown have obviously been ever-present in our midfield, so it’s a massive hole,” said manager Carla Ward.
“Stan has been excellent for us, but it’s an injury that requires intervention, so we’ll get that done on Wednesday and have her back for pre-season.”
Villa are eighth in the Women’s Super League and host Bristol City on Saturday.
