RACHEL WILLIAMS wants Tottenham to push on from their hard-fought draw with Arsenal by gatecrashing the Women’s Super League top three.
Her reflections come after her team, who some see as dark horses for a Champions League spot, snatched a point from the Gunners.
And the result left Tottenham in third place ahead of their trip to West Ham after a Conti Cup clash with Watford.
When asked if it was too early to view Spurs as top three contenders, Williams, 33, said: “We’re in there. People will always talk because we’re up there.
“We’re just not getting carried away with it.
“We’re enjoying our football, enjoying learning and we’ve brought a lot of new players in this year.
“Our attitude is there to want to be a top club. I have been in this league for a long time and I’m getting sick of it always being the same teams at the top.
“I want to be up there! Whether people want to say we’re overachieving or should be doing better because they look at the club and we’re big

“But we’re here to make everyone’s life hard when we step out onto that pitch and we’re having a good time doing it.”
Williams added: “Spurs have only been in this league two years now.
“We’re in it to have a good time, to learn and to build.
“They (Arsenal) are a big club and we want to make sure we are competing every week and that teams will come here (The Hive) and fear us knowing this is our fortress.”
Tottenham’s home draw with Arsenal ended their rivals’ winning run against them in the WSL with the Gunners having defeated Spurs on three previous occasions.
And it may well have brought a smile to the face of Williams’ former boss Emma Hayes for whom the midfield played for one season at Chelsea in 2014.
A win for the Hayes’ side at Manchester City could see the Gunners’ lead at the top reduced to a point.
