      <p>Sept 4 (Reuters) – Forward Kit Graham scored the only goal of the game as Tottenham Hotspur kicked off their Women’s Super League campaign with a nervy 1-0 win over Birmingham City at home on Saturday.</p> <p>Spurs started brightly but were repeatedly denied by a Birmingham side that offered little going forward but were stubborn in defence.

      The hosts finally broke the deadlock in the 40th minute with Graham scoring a glancing header from a move that was smartly worked around the edge of the box.</p> <p>Spurs continued to attack in the second half, with substitute Angela Addison going close to adding a second, while Birmingham managed just two shots on target in the entire game.</p> <p>Earlier, new signings Vicky Losada and Khadija Shaw were among those on target for Manchester City as they ran riot in the first half to secure a handsome 4-0 victory over Everton in their opener.</p> <p>Three down at the break, 언브로큰 a stunned Everton tried to muster a response at Goodison Park but City successfully kept them out, with Steph Houghton adding a fourth in the 67th minute.</p> <p>Aston Villa scored twice in two minutes in the second half to claim a 2-1 win over Leicester City.

      Promoted Leicester took a deserved lead through Natasha Flint in the 39th minute following a goalkeeping error by Hannah Hampton.</p> <p>Villa, however, came back strongly after the interval, 언브로큰 with Sarah Mayling curling in a splendid free kick to equalise in the 63rd minute before captain Remi Allen completed the turnaround a minute later.</p> <p>Champions Chelsea travel to Arsenal on Sunday.</p> <p>(Reporting by Dhruv Munjal in Bengaluru Editing by Toby Davis)</p></div>
