The Hammers are currently bottom of the FAWSL and are without a league victory during Olli Harder’s tenure.

Tottenham Hotspur Women v Arsenal Women
Spurs go head-to-head with the Gunners at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but it will be a very different environment from when the pair last met at the Lilywhites impressive home.

That day, back in November 2019, a record crowd numbering 38,262 witnessed a 2-0 victory for Arsenal thanks to second-half goals from Kim Little and Vivianne Miedema.

The Lilywhites played out a 1-1 draw with Bristol City last time out: “It can be frustrating for everybody when we’re putting in the effort but not getting the points we deserve out of the games,” Tottenham manager Rehanne Skinner told www.thefa.com.

Meanwhile, Arsenal greatly improved their chances of securing a Champions League berth ahead of next season with a 2-0 triumph over Manchester United: “Momentum has probably been our biggest issue this year and more based on fixtures and how things have landed, so it was great to get games intact and games going,” Arsenal boss, Joe Montemurro explained.
