The first North London Derby headlines a big weekend of fixtures in the FAWSL. Newly promoted Tottenham Hotspur Women host defending champions Arsenal Women on Sunday in what should prove to be an interesting contest.

Tottenham Hotspur Women’s set-up

Tottenham Hotspur Women will be pleased with their start to the campaign after five matches. However, Chelsea and Manchester United both showed the gap in quality between the league’s elite and this current Spurs side. Given Arsenal Women’s dominance in the English game, it is likely we will see a more defensive approach from the home side, similar to the one we saw in the two matches mentioned above. This analysis will look at what we are likely to see with their set-up.
