Arsenal women secure north London derby win against Tottenham



Arsenal take early lead

Arsenal continued their Women’s Super League title challenge with a convincing 5-1 victory over north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. The Gunners took an early lead through Sweden striker Stina Blackstenius, whose effort from a tight angle beat the Spurs keeper after poor positioning. 

Spurs struggle to mount a comeback

Spurs were mainly limited to counter-attacks and had to defend deep to hold back their north London rivals, who remained mostly in control of the game. Caitlin Foord extended the Gunners’ lead with a fine run and shot, before Bethany England pulled one back from the penalty spot for Spurs.

Arsenal take home a convincing win

Despite the small hope of a comeback, Foord, Kim Little and Frida Maanum extended Arsenal’s tally to five after the break as they strolled to an easy win at Brisbane Road. The victory means that Arsenal are three points behind league leaders Manchester United with a game in hand.

Strong opportunity for Arsenal

Arsenal host Bayern in the second leg of their quarter-final before that – and Eidevall believes his side’s performance on Saturday was good preparation. With matches against the rest of the top four still to play, lifting the trophy is still a possibility for Arsenal’s WSL team.

Spurs continue to struggle

Tottenham halted their nine-game WSL losing streak with victory over Leicester City on 15 March in interim boss Vicky Jepson’s first game in charge. They remain among the league’s relegation-threatened sides in ninth and will need to start winning more consistently in the remainder of the season.
