PREVIEW: Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur meet for the second time in just a matter of weeks on Sunday as they contest a Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture at Meadow Park.

The pair finally played their 2019/2020 Vitality Women’s FA Cup quarter-final fixture last month with Arsenal coming out on top, winning the game 4-0 courtesy of four late goals.

The Gunners go into their latest match without up to eight first team players. Goalkeeper Fran Stenson’s injury is currently being assessed while defenders Leonie Maier and Steph Catley are out. Noelle Maritz’s recent injury could force her onto the sidelines.

In midfield, Jill Roord, Kim Little and Jordan Nobbs are out while Lisa Evans will not feature in the Arsenal attack with all four players also recovering from injuries.

Visitors Tottenham Hotspur are searching for their first victory of the season in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League this weekend. Joint-head coaches Karen Hills and Juan Amoros will again be without the services of goalkeeper Aurora Mikalsen who is recovering from an ankle injury while midfielder Chloe Peplow is out after recently undergoing surgery on a foot injury.

The North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur is scheduled to kick-off at 2.30pm on Sunday afternoon and will be screened live on BT Sport 1.
