Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will play host to the first ever Premier League-WSL double-header

The men’s side currently sit seventh but have tricky ties to come against a resurgent Crystal Palace and Unai Emery’s Aston Villa. 

Their penultimate league match against Thomas Frank’s players could see the promise of European football next season hanging in the balance. 

Under interim manager Vicky Jepson, the women’s team will face equally high stakes. 

Sitting ninth in the WSL table, Tottenham hover over the relegation place by a scant three points and Leicester and Brighton beneath the north London outfit have a game in hand. 

Both sides will be chasing an important win at home on the season’s penultimate weekend

Whilst bottom-of-the-table Reading may not prove the toughest challenge Jepson’s players have faced, Spurs Women are on shaky ground having won only four matches this season. 

The team are set to face on the road on Sunday in a meeting likely to leave Spurs in desperate need of points as the season draws to a close. 

Tottenham’s chairman Daniel Levy has been in the WSL, although it is thought not to be in light of his side’s torrid season. 

Levy is understood to be one of a number of executives that believe that the threat of relegation is stopping clubs from investing heavily in the infrastructure necessary for success in the top flight.
