Holders Chelsea drawn against Durham in Women's FA Cup quarter-finals

Holders Chelsea will travel to Championship side Durham in the quarter-finals of the Women’s FA Cup following the Blues’ 3-0 demolition of Arsenal on Sunday.

Durham, fourth in the Championship, will host the two-time winners having delivered the biggest shock of the fifth round. They defeated top-tier Bristol City 2-0 with both goals – one from the halfway line – arriving courtesy of Lisa Robertson.

The Women’s Super League leaders Manchester City will host Liverpool, while Manchester United will visit WSL side Reading.

The lowest-ranked side left in the competition, Aston Villa, earned themselves a date with WSL side West Ham after three goals in 18 minutes from teenager Jodie Hutton saw them overturn a 2-1 deficit against Sheffield United to win on penalties. West Ham beat third-tier Huddersfield Town 8-1 to book their place in the quarter-finals.

The ties will be played on 17 March.
