The last time Tottenham Hotspur Women played Arsenal was on September 26 in the FA Cup quarterfinals. Despite a yawning gulf in ability between these two sides, Spurs pressed high, battled hard, and held their own for about 60 minutes before fading and falling to a 4-0 defeat.
Today, Spurs are back at Meadow Park for another away North London Derby, but this time it’s in WSL league action. Don’t think it’s going to be any easier, though. Spurs will again be up against a superior foe and will need to bring their best game in order to steal a result on the road.
What about Alex Morgan, you ask? Well, we have no idea. She didn’t make the bench in either of Spurs’ last two matches, which has led to some speculation that she may have picked up an injury in training as she tries to return to football for the first time in nearly a year. She’ll make her Tottenham debut when she does, and there’s nothing we can do about it until she does.

Match thread rules
The match thread rules are the same as always. To any visitors coming here for the first time, welcome! We’re glad you’re here! Wipe your feet, mind the gap, and be sure to check out the other pages at this outstanding site. While you’re here, though, we have a few rules and regulations:
- Absolutely no links to illegal streams. They’re bad and they get us in trouble. Violators will be warned or banned.
- We have rules against “relentless negativity.” Nobody likes a Negative Nancy. Don’t knee-jerk and post outlandish or hurtful things just because you’re frustrated.
- Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is also not allowed. It’s fine to say “wow, that was a really bad call,” but it’s NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
- Finally, while we don’t have a rule against profanity, please try and keep the naughty words in check. Also, language that is sexist, racist, transphobic,
- or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you will be immediately banned. This is an open, supportive community.
Have fun, and COYS!
