Chelsea and Tottenham are two teams that live opposite sides in the season. While Chelsea have just qualified for the UEFA Women's Champions League final and lead the league, Tottenham was far from deserving anything.

The competition for the league title is so fierce that Chelsea need to win their last two matches to become champions without depending on the results of second-placed Manchester City

Tottenham are already in the tenth position very close to the relegation zone, however, their two games late are an advantage to distance themselves from that score. The Spurs have not won nine games in the league. The last victory was in December against Aston Villa.

The match will kick off at 5:30 p.m. (UK time) at the Hive Stadium.

  • Team News

After Manchester United vs Tottenham, Alanna Kennedy talked about the team was already thinking about the match against Chelsea:

“(...) But definitely we’ll bounce back, we’re in a good headspace and team morale is always high here – it’s something I can’t fault. The girls work so hard every week in training and always stick by each other. I’m sure we’ll turn it around next week.”

With the recovery of Magdalena Eriksson, the only highlight left out of the Blues is Maren Mjelde, who was injured in the final of the Continental Tyres League Cup and is out of the season.

Emma Hayes, Sam Kerr and Ann-Katrin Berger have been nominated for April’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League Manager and Player of the Month awards. 

  • Predicted Line Ups

Tottenham: Spencer; Neville, Harrop, Zadorsky, Green; Cho, Kennedy, Graham; Williams, Naz, Dean. Coach: Rehanne Skinner. 

Chelsea: Berger; Carter, Bright, Eriksson, Andersson; Ingle, Ji, Leupolz; Harder, Kirby, Kerr. Coach: Emma Hayes. 

  • Ones to Watch

Alanna Kennedy is an important midfielder for Tottenham's game system. In the Spurs' last match against Manchester United, she had a great vision of the game to score the consolation goal after a free-kick. She is a very versatile player, so much so that she can also play as a centre back.

On the Chelsea side, Sam Kerr is our highlight. The Australian reached 18 goals in the league, drawing in the artillery with Vivianne Miedema. She is a very moving player and always leaves her mark on the match, even if she misses some opportunities beforehand. She is the most effective player in the FA WSL, averaging 1.19 goals per 90 minutes.

For the Continental Tyres League Cup in November 2020, Chelsea won Tottenham 2-0, with goals from Erin Cuthbert and Melanie Leupolz.
