London City Lionesses will host reigning champions Arsenal in the Conti Cup quarter-finals.

Elsewhere, high-flying Chelsea welcome Sunderland and Aston Villa travel to Brighton.

Manchester City's trip to Tottenham rounds out the last eight.

The quarter-finals will be played from February 7-8, with the draw taking place the day after the last ties.

Molineux will host this year's final on March 31.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have questioned the decision by an independent tribunal to allow Villa to remain in the tournament despite fielding an ineligible player. 

The Midlands club admitted the charge after Noelle Maritz came on as a substitute in their 7-0 win over Sunderland having played for Arsenal in a previous round. 

A tribunal decided to deduct Villa's three points and award the game to their opponents, which saw United lose their status as one of two best runners-up. 

A club statement said: "We are very disappointed with this outcome, and do not understand its rationale. 

"We feel that it undermines the integrity of the competition, and of the women's game."

The decision meant that Sunderland finished as Group A winners ahead of United and Villa, who took one of two runners-up spots alongside Tottenham.
