Holders Chelsea to face Aston Villa in Women's FA Cup semi-finals
Holders Chelsea will face Aston Villa in the Women’s FA Cup semi-finals, while Manchester United are taking on Brighton.
The Blues beat Reading 3-1 to reach the final four of this year's competition and are looking to secure their third successive triumph.
But they face a difficult task away at the Villans, who dumped out last year's finalists Manchester City in the quarter-finals with a 2-1 extra-time victory.
In-form England international Rachel Daly's 97th-minute winner secured a famous victory for Carla Ward's side after Deyna Castellanos had cancelled out Rachel Corsie's opener in normal time at the Bescot Stadium.
Marc Skinner's Red Devils were handed a favourable home draw against 11th-placed Women's Super League side Brighton.
United, who are second in the WSL table, dispatched Championship outfit Lewes 3-1 in the previous round as they look to land their first FA Cup crown.
The Seagulls also saw off a second-tier side in Birmingham, with Poppy Pattinson and Danielle Carter on target in a 2-0 win.
Neither United, Brighton nor Villa have ever reached the FA Cup showpiece, meaning a first-time finalist is guaranteed.
The semi-final ties will take place on Sunday, April 16 as the four sides battle for a place in the final at Wembley on Sunday, May 14.
