The draw for the Women's FA Cup semi-finals has been made with West Ham set to host Manchester City and Arsenal taking on Chelsea.

The Blues are the current holders of the competition and Arsenal will have a chance to enact revenge on Emma Hayes' side for beating them in last season's final when they reconvene next month.

Meanwhile, in-form City will be strong favourites to progress against the Hammers in the other tie. However, West Ham do have pedigree in this competition, reaching the 2019 final where they lost to the Cityzens 3-0.

There was potential for giant killings in the quarter-finals but all four WSL sides were up to the task. Chelsea made light work of Birmingham City, securing their second 5-0 win of the season against the Blues, while Man City beat Everton 4-0.

Arsenal also triumphed against Championship Coventry United 4-0 and West Ham navigated a tricky tie against third-tier Ipswich Town.

The semi-finals will take place on Saturday 16 April and Sunday 17 April, with the final scheduled for Sunday 15 May at Wembley.
