‘You can’t predict who is going to win it,’ says Tottenham boss

As Tottenham prepare to face Everton in their penultimate Barclays Women’s Super League fixture, Robert Vilahamn insisted that his side’s full focus remains on this clash – and not their upcoming Adobe Women’s FA Cup final.

Speaking to the media on Friday, Vilahamn assured that ‘we spoke about it this week, if you start looking too much towards next week, you lose sight of the here and now.’

‘If you start losing sight of that, you could lose your spot, you’re not competing as well in the squad or you don’t get chance to prepare yourself. Once again, they’ve trained very well this week and have been focused, so I’m not worried about that.’

Tottenham’s trip to Merseyside will see them face Everton at Walton Hall Park at midday on Saturday, and the Toffees will be high on confidence after 16-year-old Issy Hobson netted a late equaliser against Arsenal last time out.

Brian Sørensen has been forced to work with an injury-stricken side throughout the campaign, and Vilahamn suggested in his pre-match press conference that the Toffees’ performances are often better than results may suggest.

‘When you look at Everton, they play well, they defend well and they press high. They don’t always get the result but they’re a very good team. Brian has done great work with that squad because he has used a lot of players. They never give up and they also have young players who can come on and make an impact,’ he explained.

‘It shows that the league is very competitive. When you look at Liverpool beating Chelsea the other day, that’s why you want to be in this league because there are so many games where you can’t predict who is going to win it.’
