Arsenal face Coventry United on Friday evening in the quarter finals of the Women's FA Cup.

The Gunners are the most successful side in Women's FA Cup history, having lifted the trophy on 14 occasions.

They face a Coventry side who were on the brink of liquidation less than three months ago, and are the second lowest ranked side left in the last eight of the cup.

Arsenal team news

Arsenal continue to be without Rafaelle through injury - although the centre back is expected to only be a short-term absentee.

Tobin Heath missed Sunday evening's victory over Brighton after having an injection in her knee, but Jonas Eidevall confirmed the World Cup winner should be back in contention for Friday's FA Cup clash.

The Gunners have a busy fortnight of fixtures on the horizon, with the Champions League quarter finals and their continued pursuit of the WSL title, meaning Eidevall could rotate the pack for this one whilst keeping an eye on upcoming matches.


Coventry Utd team news

Coventry will be without midfielder Anna Wilcox, who suffered a season-ending knee injury during her side's recent victory over Crystal Palace.

There'll be a familiar face in the opposition dugout for Arsenal fans in the shape of Jo Potter. Potter spent a year with the Gunners, winning the 2004 FA Cup, and is now head coach at Coventry.

Arsenal vs Coventry Utd score prediction

Coventry have rallied together after coming back from the brink of liquidation, and have lost just one of their last five in all competitions, also going 193 minutes without conceding a goal.

However, anything other than a comfortable victory for Arsenal would be a major upset, and Eidevall's side will be expected to show their WSL class, no matter how heavily they rotate.

Score prediction: Arsenal 4-1 Coventry Utd
