Liverpool and Leicester City are first up, their two clashes this term having gone the way of the home side on each occasion. The Foxes won the Conti Cup tie 2-1, before the Reds took the points in the WSL with 2-1 again the scoreline. Leicester have yet to reach the final, Liverpool last did so in the late 1990s but went down to a second consecutive defeat.

Brighton meet Manchester United in the late afternoon kick off at Crawley, where the Seagulls drew 2-2 with Marc Skinner’s side earlier this season. United were 2-1 winners at the WSL match at Leigh. Brighton have yet to make the final, while United’s 2023 bid to win the cup was ended at Wembley.

Beaten finalists of 2020, Everton go up against the cup winners of the last three years. Chelsea have recorded two 3-0 victories over the Toffees this term, the most recent featuring two Guro Reiten penalties.

Tottenham Hotspur take on a Manchester City side who have defeated them three times already this season. Spurs suffered a 7-0 defeat at the Joie Stadium as Khadija Shaw struck a hat-trick in 15 first-half minutes, the return game was a more modest 2-0 win for City, who returned to Brisbane Road for a narrow 1-0 victory in the Conti Cup quarter-finals. Gareth Taylor’s team have won three and lost one of the last seven finals.

Early goal enough to give Chelsea Women win at Man City
