Arsenal will host rivals Manchester City in the headline clash of the Women's FA Cup fifth round.

Three-time winners City cruised into the last 16 with a 4-0 victory at Championship outfit Durham, while Arsenal — the most successful team in the competition's history with 14 triumphs — secured progression with a 5-1 thrashing of Watford.

The Women's Super League title challengers have already contested one close battle this season, with the Gunners winning 2-1 in the top flight last November courtesy of a late Stina Blackstenius goal.

Defending champions Chelsea, looking to lift the FA Cup trophy for a fourth consecutive season, will host second-tier Crystal Palace.

Emma Hayes' side earned a place in the fifth round with a 3-1 comeback victory over West Ham, with Mia Fishel, Erin Cuthbert and Aggie Beever-Jones on the scoresheet for the Blues after Viviane Asseyi's opener.

Elsewhere, Manchester United will travel to Southampton after their 5-0 win against Newcastle at Leigh Sports Village and Tottenham host Charlton in another London derby.

The Red Devils are aiming to go one better this term after losing in last season's final, with a 68th-minute goal from Chelsea star Sam Kerr condemning Marc Skinner's side to a 1-0 defeat at Wembley.

All of the fifth round ties will take place February 10-11.
