Tottenham Hotspur Women v West Ham United Women (2pm)

Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to complete an FAWSL double over West Ham United when the two sides go head-to-head at the Hive on Sunday.

Spurs won a historic encounter at the London Stadium back in late September. A crowd of almost 25,000 witnessing a 2-0 success for the Lilywhites thanks to goals from Dean and Quinn.

However, the North Londoners have flattered to deceive of late, losing three of their last five league outings – most recently, Manchester City handing out a 4-1 drubbing last weekend.

Speaking to after the game, Head Coach Juan Amoros, explained: “We’re disappointed, especially with the way we started the game, two goals in five minutes is just unacceptable for us as a team. 

“In the second half, we adapted a couple of things and made two changes and I think our performance after the break was much better. 

“They’re a very good side but still, we need to be better because we are Tottenham Hotspur Women and the girls know that we are good enough to compete against these teams but we need to make sure we do it throughout the 90 minutes.”

West Ham’s clash with Everton was called off due to a flu bug amongst the Hammers squad. However, despite the lack of a game, they have been busy in the transfer market and could include Swedish defender, Filippa Wallén, recently signed from IF Brommapojkarna.

Speaking to about the move, Wallén said: “I’m really happy to join West Ham.

“It means a lot to be here. This is a really big step for me, and I think it will be a huge move for my development.

“Of course, West Ham play in the Women’s Super League, which is one of the biggest leagues in the world, and West Ham is such a big club. Everyone has heard of West Ham and I’ve heard so many good things about this club. I can’t wait to get going.”

Hammers Head Coach, Matt Beard, was also enthusiastic about his latest capture, adding: “Filippa is a talented and pacey full-back who has already shown her quality, despite her young age, in Swedish football.

“I would like to welcome her to West Ham United and I am looking forward to working with Filippa in the coming months and seasons.”

 A Swedish national, Wallén’s journey into football saw the youngster represent AIK Fotboll in
