The weekend’s Adobe Women’s FA Cup Fifth Round ties include a clash of two of the WSL’s top three teams, with Arsenal home to Manchester City.

Saturday sees two Championship title-chasers visiting WSL opposition, with Leicester City hosting Birmingham City and Spurs entertaining Tier Two leaders Charlton.

The top flight’s third and second-placed teams clash on Sunday, with Arsenal meeting Manchester City whom they beat 2-1 in the WSL earlier in the season.

Two teams still carry the banner for the FA WNL at home to opponents from two divisions above, with Wolves up against Brighton and Nottingham Forest facing Everton.

Destiney Toussaint, who scored the winner for Wolves at Reading in the previous round, told about the mentality going into the Brighton tie: “Lots of confidence and we go in with no fear. As we say sometimes, it’s almost a free hit at the game.”

Forest will be without Alice Keitley, who suffered a ruptured ACL during the FA WNL game against AFC Fylde.

Crystal Palace have a testing local trip to holders Chelsea, Southampton have a massive home tie with last season’s beaten finalists Manchester United, while London City also have an exciting home match with Liverpool as Lionesses’ interim head coach Darren Smith takes charge for the first time.

Winners of the Fifth Round ties will received £80,000 each from the competition prize fund, losing teams all get £20,000.
