Update: Due to the snowfall across London, this match between Spurs Women and Everton has been postponed for safety reasons after a pitch inspection. I’m leaving the rest of the article in place because dammit, it took me a while to write.

Boy, we haven’t done one of these in a hot minute! It’s a Tottenham Hotspur Women match thread! After a couple of delayed matches and a couple more where they played at the same time as the men, it’s time to finally give Spurs Women their due. Spurs have won three matches on the trot after a pretty abysmal start to the WSL season, but they’ll face a sticky challenge against the Toffees today at The Hive.
I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m trying to delet
Everton are a solid team this year. While the Big Four are gonna Big Four, the Toffees have established themselves as, presently, the best of the rest, currently in fifth place with 17 points from ten matches. The Toffees know how to find the back of the net — their 21 goals puts them (yes) fifth in the WSL, and they are adept at spreading the goals around. Everton is led by Izzy Christiansen and Lucy Graham, both with just four goals apiece, but nine different players have scored for them this season. Christiansen’s header was the difference between the two sides when they last met in September, with Everton coming away with a narrow 1-0 loss.
Everton lost starting defensive midfielder Damaris Egurrola to Lyon in the transfer window recently, but were able to secure the services of Manchester City and England international midfielder Jill Scott until the end of the season. Much like Spurs’ addition of Abbie McManus on loan from Manchester United, Scott is likely to slot immediately into the midfield.
Tottenham have struggled to score this season, notching only 11 goals so far, but their defense has been pretty good overall. After a slow start, Spurs have won their last three matches under new manager Rehanne Skinner, but will need to play extremely well to get revenge on Everton today.
To be posted when released by the clubs.
