Tottenham v Manchester United

Although Man Utd are in much better form in the league, they were beaten by second tier side Liverpool in the League Cup in the week.

Contrastingly, Spurs beat Brighton on penalties to pick up their first win of the campaign.

Could the Lilywhites push on from that victory in midweek?

1 min: Chance so early on! It’s a great ball in from Russo on the right-hand side and Zelem is unmarked in the middle. She leaps to head towards goal but mistimes her jump and skews it tamely as Spurs can clear.
