Beaten semi-finalists last season, Liverpool are again into the last eight after seeing off Blackburn Rovers with three unanswered goals.

Stoke City reached the last eight in 2015-16 but fell short of that achievement after going down 4-0 at Aston Villa.

There was only one goal in it as Birmingham City accounted for Everton, likewise with Chelsea edging past Oxford United to also book their quarter-final berth.

Lucy Fitzgerald and Kara Fordjour were on target as Millwall ran out 2-0 victors over Essex FA.

Teesside Sport eliminated Durham by three goals to one in the all North-East clash.
