Arsenal Women’s North London derby against Super League rivals Tottenham has been postponed due to the adverse weather conditions.

The Gunners had hoped to bounce back from last Sunday's dissapointing 2-1 away defeat to title rivals Manchester City.

It was set to be the first ever competitive North London derby at Meadow Park, where Arsenal ran out 6-0 winners against the Whites in a pre-season friendly fixture.

The two clubs met in the Women's Super League at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in November with Joe Montemurro's side coming away with a 2-0 win infront of a record WSL crowd of 38,262.

Arsenal will be back in action on Thursday evening as they head to Chester's Deva Stadium to take on Liverpool.
