Women’s FA Cup: Chelsea meet Arsenal in semi-final, Man City v West Ham

FA Cup holders Chelsea will face Arsenal in the last four in a repeat of last season’s final.

Manchester City, the winners of 2019, have been drawn against West Ham.

Chelsea claimed their third FA Cup, beat Arsenal 3-0 in a postponed December final, heading for a domestic treble. The Gunners have won the league a record 14 times.

Both semi-finals will be played on Sunday 17 April, followed by the final at Wembley on 15 May.

Chelsea, who also won the Women’s Super League title and the League Cup last season, drove past Arsenal in front of 40,942 fans at Wembley on the 50th anniversary of the competition.

Meanwhile, West Ham and City will face each other in a replay of the 2019 final, in which City claimed their third FA Cup.

“It’s such a spectacle for women’s games and it’s always an honor to play in the final,” said former Arsenal and England captain Faye White, who led the draw.

“Now it’s at Wembley, it’s huge and a real showpiece where every player wants to go, for that atmosphere.”

Asked who she thought would compete in the final, White said: “In form, City and hopefully Arsenal. It’s a tough game against Chelsea and it’s always a great rivalry, but it’s two great games.”
