    Aston Villa won the first Women’s Super League match of the year to inflict a fifth straight loss on Tottenham.

    Spurs took the lead through star signing Bethany England on her debut, but Villa had come from behind just 10 minutes later.

    Kenza Dali equalised with a 20-yard strike before Rachel Daly turned home a Kirsty Hanson cross.

    This match was the first for 31 days in the WSL, with Spurs losing the final game of 2022 and the first of 2023.

    Defeat leaves Spurs in eighth with nine points from 10 games, while Villa rise to sixth having won five and lost five of their matches.
