We have a relegation dogfigh on our hands in the WSL as managerless Tottenham Hotspur gear up to take on bottom-of-the-league Leicester City.
It’s a crucial game that could decide the fate of either club. Just two points separate them – while a win for Spurs could see them escape the relegation fight, a win for Leicester would propel them above the North London club.
Both teams have had dismal campaigns in the WSL this season. While Leicester have just two wins across the season, Tottenham have lost nine league games in a row – which led to the dismissal of now-former manager Rehanne Skinner.
While Leicester have the weaker league position of the two teams, Spurs are experiencing a worse run of form. As mentioned, Spurs have lost all of their last nine games – meanwhile, Leicester have picked up a couple of decent wins over the likes of Liverpool and Brighton in recent weeks.
Spurs have more quality within their squad, with top players such as Bethany England, Drew Spence and Kit Graham. However, they are currently very disconnected, especially with the lack of a permanent first-team manager – Leicester are currently a more cohesive unit, which could play in their favour.
The two teams met earlier in the season, all the way back in September. In that game, Spurs came out on top by a score of 2-1, with Ashleigh Neville and Drew Spence scoring Tottenham’s goals – Leicester’s solitary goal came by the way of an own goal by Spence. Will it be repeat or revenge in the reverse fixture?
