Arsenal and Chelsea meet for another Women’s FA Cup showdown amid WSL title fight


WSL title rivals Arsenal and Chelsea meet in the Women’s FA Cup semi-final on Sunday.

Just one point separates the top two teams with four games remaining and leaders Chelsea will claim a third straight crown if they win their remaining games.

The Blues have scored 19 goals in their last three matches under Emma Hayes, while Arsenal beat Leicester 5-0 before the recent international break.

Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema enters the game in fine form after scoring six goals in 53 minutes for the Netherlands in their 12-0 thrashing against Cyprus last week.

Chelsea were rampant when they beat Arsenal 3-0 at Wembley in December in last season’s delayed final, but the Gunners have won the competition a record 14 times and have home advantage at the weekend.

In the other semi-final, West Ham host Manchester City on Saturday in a repeat of the 2019 final.

City lifted the trophy that day and also got the better of the Hammers when the two sides met in the WSL in their final game earlier this month, as goals from Georgia Stanway and Khadija Shaw gave them a 2-0 victory.

The final will take place at Wembley on May 15.
