Tottenham and Liverpool settled for a draw at Brisbane Road in a competitive match during the Women’s Super League season. Celine Bizet Ildhusoy’s remarkable solo goal, initiated from her own half, opened the scoring for the hosts. Liverpool responded with Sophie Roman Haug’s header in the 65th minute, skillfully set up by Yana Daniels.
Tottenham pressed early, challenging Liverpool’s defense with chances, including a crucial block by Jenna Clark and a near miss from Ashleigh Neville. Martha Thomas, the WSL’s leading scorer, aimed for her seventh goal but faced resistance, including Gemma Bonner’s deflection.
Despite Bonner’s initial defensive contribution, she allowed Bizet to capitalize on space, breaking the deadlock with a well-executed solo effort. Liverpool faced adversity with an early injury substitution for Mia Enderby, adding to the absence of Emma Koivisto and Missy-Bo Kearns due to prior injuries.
Liverpool struggled to convert chances but equalized when Roman Haug headed in a cross from Daniels. Ellie Brazil’s return to the pitch after a lengthy ACL injury added to Tottenham’s efforts, but both teams, effectively using counterattacks, couldn’t secure a decisive lead, ultimately sharing the points. Unfortunately, Tottenham’s Olga Ahtinen suffered a knee injury in stoppage time, leading to her substitution.
