Tottenham Hotspur host London rivals West Ham in the final day of the WSL as they hope to finish the season on a win. 

After heartbreak in the FA Cup Final against Manchester United and a midweek loss to Chelsea in the league, Robert Vilihamn’s side will be hoping to end their 23/24 campaign on a high in N17.

Neither team can move up or down from their positions in the table heading into the match, but it will undeniably be an exciting fixture as London bragging rights are up for grabs on the big stage of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

As of late, neither team have enjoyed good form in the league, Spurs having just one win out of their last five, whilst West Ham have none.

Nevertheless, both sets of fans will be cheering for their teams to put on a thrilling end-of-season spectacle in the North London sun.

The Swedish defender was forced off on a stretcher during Tuesday’s game at Brisbane Road after spraining her ankle, but in positive news both goalkeeper Becky Spencer and defender Molly Bartrip are back in contention for the final day.

Speaking to the media ahead of the game, Vilihamn said: ”You can tell that the players are using all the energy that they have left to make sure we have a good game tomorrow.”

For West Ham, Iclandic midfielder Dagný Brynjarsdóttir returns to the squad.

The former captain announced she would miss the 23/24 season after announcing her pregnancy at the end of last summer but now returns in time for the final day.

Hammers head coach Rehanne Skinner said: ”She’s been recovering and going through all of the safe return-to-play elements.

It’s a positive to have her come into the team tomorrow, so we’re delighted to have her back with us.”

On the challenge her team will face against Spurs, she said: ”First and foremost, it’s a London derby, so we know it’s going to be a battle.

”I don’t think either side will be approaching it as the last game of the season as things are winding down – certainly we aren’t approaching it in that way.”

All matches kick off simultaneously at 3pm (BST) on Saturday 18 May.
