Hello. It’s a big day in the north of London: Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal, one of the great derbies in English football. Arsenal have been ruthless against the teams outside the top four, with nine wins and 41 goals in ten games. That includes a 6-1 tonking of Spurs in the return fixture, though it was much closer when the sides met in the League Cup in November: Spurs played their part in a compelling 2-2 draw before losing on penalties.
On the face of it, Arsenal’s need for points is greater – Spurs sit comfortably in eighth, despite a miserable recent run of form, whereas Arsenal are battling with Manchester United for a place in next season’s Champions League. But the Spurs coach Rehanne Skinner has big ambitions for her team; a rare win over Arsenal would be a significant rite of passage.
