FA Cup preview: Spurs Women v London City Lionesses

Fri 27 January 2023, 11:45|Tottenham Hotspur

Our Vitality Women’s FA Cup campaign begins for 2022/23 at home to London City Lionesses in the fourth round on Sunday (12pm KO). 

Tickets for the match are available here. 

London City’s story so far

London City Lionesses are a breakaway team formed from their previous affiliation with Millwall Lionesses. Described as ‘a new era for football’ and ‘a new club for London’, the Lionesses are well on their way to making their Women’s Super League ambitions a reality, while doing so as the first independent fully professional women’s club in London.

London City have taken 24 points from 11 games in the league this season, losing just once in the Championship. They are one point above Bristol City, who have a game in hand, at the time of writing.

Nikita Runnacles was appointed as London City Lionesses head coach on Monday, after manager Melissa Phillips, who had the team at the top of the Women’s Championship, left to become assistant coach of Angel City FC in the US, returning to her home in California.

Runnacles was appointed assistant coach ahead of this season, having previously held the position of first team goalkeeping coach since the 2020/21 season.

Rehanne’s thoughts

“London City will be perceived as underdogs, but it’s a cup game, 11 v 11, and every game is a tough test. We know how well they’ve been doing in the Championship this season. There’s no fear to be had, we have to come out fighting, do our jobs well, and build on what we did well on Wednesday.”

Match officials

Melissa Burgin has been appointed to take charge of Sunday’s game, Julia Kings and Anastasiya Voloshcuk her assistants and Christopher Howes the fourth official.
