Arsenal will play away at Manchester City in the Women’s FA Cup semi-final on Thursday evening. This is the conclusion of last season’s competition, which was not completed due to the early cancellation of the campaign in the spring.
Joe Montemurro’s side eased into the semis with a 4-0 victory over Tottenham on Saturday evening thanks to a sublime chip from Jordan Nobbs and a hat-trick from Lisa Evans. Manchester City narrowly defeated Championship Leicester 2-1 today in their quarter-final, meaning the teams will meet at the Academy Stadium on Thursday evening for a place in the final, which is to be played on Sunday, 1st November at Wembley Stadium.
In the other quarter-finals played today, Chelsea lost 2-1 away at Everton while Birmingham defeated Brighton on penalties after a 2-2 draw and Everton and Birmingham will meet on Wednesday night for a place in the final. Arsenal’s tie with Manchester City kicks off at 7.15pm on Thursday and will be screened live on BBC Two in the UK and streamed free of charge on the FA Player everywhere else.
Take a bow, @JordanNobbs8 ?♀️
