CAPTAIN'S PRIDE: Steph Houghton holds the FA Cup aloft following City's stunning 4-1 triumph at Wembley in 2017

CAPTAIN'S PRIDE: Steph Houghton holds the FA Cup aloft following City's stunning 4-1 triumph at Wembley in 2017

A mouth-watering semi-final clash at Chelsea awaits, should City progress to the FA Women's Cup semi-finals.

If the Blues defeat Sunderland at Mariners' Park on Sunday 25 March, we will lock horns with Emma Hayes' side for the fourth time in the competition - and the third at the semi-final stage.

City are the reigning champions, having lifted the trophy with a stunning 4-1 win over Birmingham at Wembley in May 2017.

Chelsea have emerged victorious from all three FA Cup clashes with City, while Nick Cushing's side have fared better in the Continental Tyres Cup meetings - most recently, winning 1-0 at Kingsmeadow in the semi-finals.

This season's league encounters have both ended in draws - 0-0 and 2-2.

The winner of the semi-final tie will face either Durham, Everton, Arsenal or Charlton in the final at Wembley.

Three of the four quarter-final ties fell victim to the weather on Sunday 18 March and will be played this weekend, with the scheduled FA WSL matches due to take place cancelled.

Chelsea won 3-0 at Liverpool to progress to the last four stage, after beating London Bees and Doncaster.

Holders City won 2-0 at Brighton and Hove Albion and 3-1 at Birmingham after extra-time. If we go on to reach our second domestic final of the season, we will have done so having played every single cup knock-out game away from home.

CAPTAIN'S NOTES: Steph Houghton reflects on a disappointing night...

Steph Houghton has called for an immediate response from her City side, after the Blues fell to defeat in the Continental Tyres Cup Final.

The holders suffered a second defeat in three games, as Vivienne Miedema’s first half strike separated the sides at Adams Park, Wycombe to inflict Arsenal’s revenge on Nick Cushing’s side for our 2014 triumph.
