Tottenham 1-5 Arsenal: Caitlin Foord scores twice as Gunners romp to victory in North London derby

Arsenal kept themselves in the Women’s Super League title picture and secured North London bragging rights with a 5-1 victory over Tottenham.

The Gunners arrived at Brisbane Road on the back of a 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, but showed no signs of a hangover as they made a rapid start.

Spurs weathered the storm of goals from Stina Blackstenius and Caitlin Foord, and a Beth England penalty cut the gap but Arsenal went through the gears after the break to romp to victory.

The win took The Gunners within two points of leaders Chelsea, who face Manchester City on Sunday, and level with Manchester United who entertain West Ham later on Saturday.

Tottenham remain in ninth with 12 points from 16 games.

The opening goal came on five minutes, and it was far too easy from a Tottenham perspective.

Blackstenius got in behind Molly Bartrip to reach a long ball and arrowed a shot into the top corner.

Arsenal continued to press with a flowing move down the right, and it took a well-timed tackle from Amy Turner to deny Blackstenius a shooting chance.

On 29 minutes, the lead was doubled. Foord picked up the ball on the left, drove at the Tottenham defence before cutting inside and picking out the bottom corner via the post from the edge of the box.

Arsenal continued to pick holes in the Tottenham defence, and Spurs goalkeeper Tinja-Riikka Korpela kept her side in the contest with a smart save with her feet to deny Victoria Pelova.

Tottenham got a lifeline on 39 minutes when they were awarded a penalty for handball, and England slotted home to cut the gap.

Arsenal came out strong for the second half and after a period of sustained pressure they were awarded a penalty for a foul on Katie McCabe. Kim Little smashed home the spot kick with authority.

The penalty took any remaining spirit out of Tottenham, and Foord wrapped up the points for Jonas Eidevall’s side with a neat finish on 66 minutes.

Arsenal rubbed salt into Tottenham wounds when Frida Maanum’s effort took a wicked deflection before looping over Korpela to make it five goals for the visitors.
