Chelsea to meet Man City in Women's FA Cup semi-finals

(Reuters) - Champions Chelsea will meet Manchester City in the Women’s FA Cup semi-finals following the draw on Monday, while Reading face West Ham United in the other last-four tie.

A double from Georgia Stanway after Janine Beckie’s opener ensured City overcame Liverpool in Sunday’s quarter-final to remain on course for the domestic treble.

City, who are top of the Women’s Super League, won the League Cup after beating Arsenal in the final last month.

Chelsea clinched a semi-final spot for a sixth consecutive season with a hard-fought 1-0 win over part-time side Durham.

Rakel Honnudottir’s last-gasp goal helped Reading beat Manchester United 3-2 after extra-time, while West Ham edged past Championship side Aston Villa 1-0.

Reading and City will host the semi-final ties on April 14, with the final scheduled for May 4 at Wembley Stadium.
