Women's FA Cup: Treble-chasing Chelsea draw Birmingham in quarter-finals

Chelsea will need to get past Birmingham City in the quarter-finals of the Women’s FA Cup if they are to stay on course for a domestic treble.

Although the 2020/21 campaign has ended, Emma Hayes and her side still have a chance of a domestic treble having already won the League Cup and the FA Women’s Super League.

Holders Manchester City will face newly-promoted Leicester City as they look to retain the trophy after they beat Everton 3-1 last November.

Arsenal – who have won a record 14 titles – are at home to Tottenham in a north London derby, while Brighton will play Charlton in the other quarter-final.

All the quarter-final matches will be played on Wednesday, September 29.

The semi-finals are scheduled to take place on October 31, with the final on December 5.
