Spurs and Hammers go head to head in derby FAWSL opener

Tottenham Hotspur will take on West Ham United on the opening day of the FA Women’s Super League season early next month.

The pair clash in the opening round of fixtures – the match to take place at Barnet FC’s Hive home. Both Spurs and the Hammers have spent the lockdown period reshaping their squads in a bid to improve on mid-table finishes last season.

Elsewhere, champions Chelsea head to Manchester United, while much-fancied Arsenal host Reading.
