What Can Be Expected from Tottenham in the 2022/23 Women’s Super League?

Published

on

The Women’s Super League returns in September when Tottenham will be hoping they can push towards the title. Rehanne Skinner’s side finished fifth last season in a solid campaign for the Lilywhites.

Tottenham last lifted the Women’s Super League trophy in 2017 but there is strong optimism around the idea that they can end the upcoming campaign at the top of the standings.

It has been a busy summer in women’s football with the women’s European Championship taking centre stage. A number of Tottenham’s rivals still have players who remain in the tournament, particularly with England who are the 13/8 favourites in the .

The hosts are one of the leading ’s event. They have a great chance of going to the trophy, and if they do, those players will not return to their respective clubs until mid-August.

Most of Skinner’s squad have been able to rejuvenate over the summer. Goalkeeper Tinja-Riikka Korpela featured in all three of Finland’s group games. However, they were eliminated before the knockout stages. It should mean that Tottenham are fresh and ready for the campaign ahead.

No European Football Next Season

Although it is a shame that Tottenham did not qualify for any European football next season, it does mean their schedule is lighter than in Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City. Spurs can concentrate on the league, which is a big advantage.

Skinner will be hoping her side gets off to a fast start against this season. After rounds three and four in the 2021/22 campaign, they were second behind early leaders Arsenal. Their form did dip in the second half of the season, although injuries played a big part in those results.

Tottenham were particularly strong at home, losing just three games at Brisbane Road last year. Those defeats came to Aston Villa, Chelsea and Manchester City. If they can continue, or even improve on that record, Spurs should be at the top end of the table again.

Ramona Petzelberger Adds Quality to Squad

Tottenham signed German midfielder Ramona Petzelberger in the summer from Aston Villa. She has featured 30 times in the Women’s Super League for the Villains, scoring six goals in those games, so she knows the competition well.

Petzelberger is an attacking midfielder who should help her new side going forward. The German international featured in the Arnold Clark Cup back in February. Skinner has praised her as having “great technical ability and creativity”.

Tottenham also added Drew Spence to their squad in the off-season. The 29-year-old was Chelsea’s longest-serving player before she left the Blues at the end of her contract. She played 223 times for the west London club.

The Jamaican international and Petzelberger will ensure a lot of competition for a place in midfield next season.

Tottenham’s opening game of the 2022/23 Women’s Super League campaign comes home to Manchester United on the 11th of September. It will be a tough opening test for the Lilywhites.
