Women's Sport: Everton is set to host Chelsea in the Women's FA Cup quarter-final

Tottenham Hotspur v Everton - Barclays FA Women's Super League

Everton is set to host Chelsea in the Women's FA Cup quarter-final, both teams respectfully came out on top from Monday's fifth-round matches.

Everton convincingly defeated Bristol City 5-0 on Monday, whilst, Chelsea swopped in to punish Liverpool 1-0 to secure their place in the quarter-finals. 

With a potential north-London derby on the cards, all eyes turn to Arsenal as they host Lewes on the 23rd of February, with a win meaning that the Gunners will be the hosts for Spurs in the quarters. Manchester City will travel to Leicester or Reading, while, Crystal Palace or Brighton will host Birmingham City.

Leicester, Lewes, and Crystal Palace are the last remaining Championship sides - which could mean that if they face defeat in their postponed fifth-round clash then the title would be left to the Super League sides.

Chelsea was crowned winners of the Women's FA Cup in 2018, and are currently hunting down the domestic treble, with the respective Continental Cup Final commencing next weekend (29th of February) against Arsenal. However, if Arsenal can find a turnaround in the league they could relive the glorious quadruple that happened back in 2017. 

Emma Haynes stated on Monday that: "We deserve to be winners and we're just happy to be in the hat for the next round".

The full quarter-final draw is as follows:

  • Crystal Palace or Brighton vs Birmingham City
  • Everton vs Chelsea
  • Arsenal or Lewes vs Tottenham Hotspur
  • Leicester City or Reading vs Manchester City
