Manchester City to face Chelsea

Manchester City to face Chelsea

Manchester City will host Chelsea and Reading will play West Ham in the semi-finals of the Women’s FA Cup, meaning one of the latter pair will reach the final for the first time in their history. 

This will be the fifth time in six seasons Manchester City and holders Chelsea have met in the FA Cup semi-finals – they have never met in the final – and if the League Cup is included this is their seventh domestic semi-final meeting since 2014.

In the previous round, Reading required a 120th-minute goal to see off Championship side Manchester United, while West Ham narrowly defeated Aston Villa, who were the lowest-ranked team remaining, via a first-half Jane Ross strike.

City comfortably despatched Liverpool but only a Ji So-yun moment of brilliance separated Chelsea from Championship Durham. 

Ties will be played Sunday 14th April.
