Arsenal have book their place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup after came from behind to defeating neighbours Tottenham Hotspur in a one-sided north London derby at Meadow Park on Wednesday evening.
The visitors took a surprise early lead through Rachel Williams, who firing a shot past Lydia Williams from the edge of the area in the third minute of the game.
However, Jonas Eidevall’s side restored themselves as Maya Iwabuchi equalised with a fine finish of her own, finding the top corner in the 15th minute.
Arsenal kept pouring forward and took the lead just after the half-hour mark. Tobin Heath, who was making her first start for the Gunners, found Lotte Wubben-Moy at the far post with a free kick.
Her cross-shot deflected in off Spurs defender Asmita Ale, and the hosts added a third just four minutes later.
Nikita Parris played a one-two with Iwabuchi before crossing low for Caitlin Foord to score, and it was 4-1 on the stroke of half-time as Parris flicked a corner beyond Spurs keeper Rebecca Spencer.
In the second half, Williams got down well to deny Chioma Ubogagu before Foord added her second. The Australian forward finished off a quick break, stretching to prod home from Beth Mead’s pass.
The Gunners will face Brighton in the last four – the Seagulls’ first Women’s FA Cup semi-final since 1975-76 – while Chelsea beat Birmingham to set up a meeting with Manchester City.
