Spurs Women v Liverpool Women - Karen and Juan's preview
Fri 13 September 2019, 17:11|Tottenham Hotspur
Last Sunday was a historic occasion for the Club having made our debut in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League (WSL) in front of a bumper crowd at Stamford Bridge.
Now we have officially arrived in the WSL, our attentions turn to this Sunday (15 September) with more history for the Club forthcoming when we play our first-ever home game at The Hive.
We start life at our new home ground against Liverpool, a team who we will be competing against for the first time in history.
With both sides looking to bounce back from opening day defeats, Sunday’s encounter promises to be a fascinating one.
Our WSL debut
Reflecting on our opening match at Chelsea, Head Coach Juan Amoros said: “We set high standards last Sunday and made a clear statement of what this team is about and what we want to achieve in the league this season.
“For us, that is now a benchmark and we’ll be expecting that standard in every game. We showed that we can compete and now it’s about going into Sunday’s game to win.”
Hosting Liverpool in our first game at The Hive
Back-to-back winners of the WSL in 2013 and 2014, the Reds started the 2019/20 campaign with a narrow 1-0 defeat at home to Reading last weekend.
Head Coach Karen Hills said: “Vicky (Jepson) is a very good coach and I know she will have her team raring to go against us on Sunday, but we’re ready and I think it will come down to the finer details.”
The Reds added Jade Bailey from Chelsea, Melissa Lawley from Manchester City and Becky Jane from Reading to their squad in the summer transfer window.
Karen continued: “I know Vicky has made some quality signings in the summer and they will be looking to push on from last season. It will be an interesting match and we’re all extremely excited to be playing our home games at The Hive this season - hopefully we can get as many fans there as possible on Sunday.”
Kick-off against Liverpool is at 2pm at The Hive. You can purchase tickets online up until 1.30pm on Sunday via The Hive's ticketing platform.
Tickets will also be available to buy from the ticket office at The Hive on matchday.
