The SSE FA Women’s Cup semi-final draw was made this morning and Arsenal could face an away game should they beat Charlton next Sunday.

The full draw is:

Durham or Everton v Arsenal or Charlton

Chelsea v Sunderland or Manchester City

Ties to be played on Sunday the 15th of April, both shown live on BBC.


The final will be played at Wembley Stadium on Saturday the 5th May with a late kick-off due to TV restrictions.

Obviously, Arsenal have to beat third tier team Charlton first, but it is certainly the best available draw at this stage of the tournament.

To avoid the top two teams in England in the semi, should Arsenal make it, is really good and clears the road to Wembley.

Durham are a WSL 2 side, so we would be real favourites to beat them.

We beat Everton home and away in the League, so the chances of beating them would be high again.

It’s feasible that Arsenal could make it to Wembley and do the Cup double, having already sealed the Conti Cup with a win over Manchester City.
