Spurs bid to build on one-club ethos with showpiece victory

Grace Clinton absence a blow

Grace Clinton, 21, has been one of Spurs’ standout performers this season but the No.10 is on loan from Manchester United and ineligible to face her parent club at Wembley. Celin Bizet Ildhusøy may get the nod instead, or Spurs could call on the experienced Martha Thomas, who played in last year’s final for United and scored the winner against Leicester in the semi.

United style could be telling

United played with a conservative and transitional approach to see off Chelsea in their semi-final, finishing a 2-1 win with just 30 percent possession. The question is whether Marc Skinner’s side will try the same set up against Spurs or try to take the game to their opponents, who are not the same class as Chelsea after all.

Can England fire on big stage?

Spurs have eased their reliance on Bethany England this season after the captain’s campaign was severely impacted by hip surgery last summer. But the Lioness is slowly working her way back to her best and has four goals in as many games. Robert Vilahamn, the Spurs head coach, believes England is still not at her best, and the stage is set for a big performance on Sunday.
