Alex Morgan missed the deciding penalty as Tottenham lost 5-4 in a shootout at north London rivals Arsenal in the Women’s Continental League Cup.

The United States striker came on as a substitute in a 2-2 draw, before the group-stage game went to a shootout to determine who received a bonus point.

But the result saw both Arsenal and Spurs eliminated from the cup.

Chelsea top Group B, although their match away at second-tier team London City Lionesses was postponed.

The Championship side had to call their game off shortly before kick-off on Wednesday after two of their first-team players and one member of staff tested positive for Covid-19.

Leicester’s trip to Birmingham City was also postponed for the same protocol reasons after a positive test within the home camp.

But the result between Arsenal and Spurs ensured holders Chelsea will go through to the quarter-finals and the Gunners cannot finish as one of the two best runners-up.

Meanwhile, Women’s Super League side Bristol City ensured their progression to the last eight as Group F winners as they won at Lewes to claim a third win from three.

West Ham also went through as Group D winners thanks to their comfortable win at Charlton.

Wednesday’s results:

Group B

Arsenal 2-2 Tottenham

London City Lionesses P-P Chelsea

Group C

Everton 1-0 Liverpool

Group D

Brighton 0-2 Reading

Charlton Athletic 0-4 West Ham United

Group E

Birmingham City P-P Leicester City

Group F

Lewes 1-3 Bristol City
