Manchester City tackle local rivals Manchester United whom they edged 1-0 on the opening day of the Barclays FA WSL season and the only other all top-flight tie sees Arsenal go to West Ham, whom the Gunners beat 2-1 earlier in the league campaign.

Championship leaders Aston Villa can test their WSL credentials when hosting Brighton, likewise second-placed Sheffield United at  home to Birmingham City, London City Lionesses also have an attractive draw against Reading and Durham visit Bristol City.

Bottom of the FA WC, Charlton Athletic are up against the might of WSL leaders Chelsea, Liverpool have switched their game with Blackburn Rovers to Bamber Bridge FC due to the state of the Tranmere Rovers pitch, Everton face London Bees and Barnsley attempt to span three divisions in tackling Tottenham Hotspur at The Hive.

Burnley take on more senior opposition in Leicester City WFC and three fourth-tier clubs are paired with FA WC teams, as Billericay Town head to Lewes, Southampton FC chase yet another cup shock when entertaining Coventry United and Southampton Women’s play Crystal Palace.

At least two National League teams will make the last sixteen, as Huddersfield Town play at the John Smith’s Stadium for the first time with Ipswich Town their visitors, and the two Premier Division leaders – Sunderland and Watford –  go head-to-head.

Fourth round winners receive £2,000 from the prize fund, defeated teams get £500.
