Spurs host Aston Villa Ladies this weekend in top form after an 8-0 victory over Millwall Lionesses last Sunday

Spurs Ladies head coach Juan Amoros was delighted with his side’s clinical 8-0 victory over Millwall Lionesses in the FA Women’s Championship last weekend.

Four goals in either half meant the Tottenham Hotspur supporters witnessed a dominant display from the Lilywhites at Cheshunt FC’s Theobalds Lane.

“We were very pleased with the performance and the way the players executed the game plan,” Amoros said.

“The way we played was outstanding. Finishing is something we have really tried to work on and I felt we were really good in front of goal.

“The movement on and off the ball was outstanding from our players and that intensity is in our DNA.”

The Spaniard was also pleased to see his side keep a clean sheet. He added: “It is also important that we don’t concede goals. We did really well to concede no chances so I am really pleased with that.”

Rianna Dean scored a birthday hat-trick for Spurs to continue her fine form and Amoros was quick to give praise to the young striker.

The Tottenham head coach said: “She does a lot for the team, she brings players into the game and we are really pleased with her.

“She is a number nine who just loves scoring goals and everyone at the club is delighted for her.”

Bianca Baptiste came off the bench to score as well and Amoros highlighted how strong his squad is.

He said: “This is the headache that every single coach wants, we are making sure everyone feels part of the club.

“At the moment it is working and we made three changes to give some others a chance. The players that came off from the bench had a very good game.”

The win at Cheshunt means Spurs Ladies went top of the league, but Amoros highlighted the importance of taking the season game by game.

He finished: “I really believe at the start of the season you have to try and get as many points as you can and at the end you start fighting for targets you need, but every game is key for us and every match is a final.”

Next up for Spurs is a home clash with Aston Villa Ladies on Sunday at 1pm.
