  1. Thank you and goodbye

    Chelsea Women.

    Thank you so much for joining us for what has been a pretty interesting evening of Women's FA Cup action.

    Big guns Chelsea are used to putting teams to the sword but tonight it was Tottenham and Everton who had their shooting boots on.

    Nonetheless, Emma Hayes' side got the job done against Liverpool - and will now be looking to knock out Merseyside outfits in successive rounds after being pitted against the Toffees in the quarter-finals.

    Before then, the Women's Super League is back on Sunday - with a mouthwatering meeting between Manchester City and Chelsea in what could be a title decider, so join us then. Until then, goodbye.

  2. How the quarter-finals look

    So, now that we know the three sides who have gone through tonight, here is the updated quarter-final draw:

    • Crystal Palace or Brighton v Birmingham City
    • Everton v Chelsea
    • Arsenal or Lewes v Tottenham
    • Leicester or Reading v Manchester City

    The ties are scheduled to be played on Sunday, 15 March.


    Coventry United 0-5 Tottenham

    It's a second assist for Lucy Quinn and a hat-trick for Rianna Dean as the Spurs striker nods home an inviting cross to put the icing on the cake in stoppage time.

    That's her first goal in open play on the night - her earlier two both came from the penalty spot - as Spurs match fellow top-flight outfit Everton's earlier efforts by winning 5-0.

  4. Post update

    Coventry United 0-4 Tottenham

    They are just playing out the final few minutes at Coventry now which gives us chance to remind you when the three remaining FA Cup fifth round ties will be played.

    Leicester host Reading on Thursday for the right to host Manchester City in the quarter-finals, while Arsenal welcome Lewes on Sunday knowing victory will set up a tasty tie against derby foes Tottenham.

    Finally, Crystal Palace entertain Brighton on Tuesday, 25 February with the winners hosting Birmingham City in the last eight.

  5. FT: Bristol City 0-5 Everton

    Everton's excellent night was dampened only by a worrying injury to defender Gabby George, who was stretchered off after just seconds of the first half.

    She's out on the pitch now joining in with the celebrations (which itself is good to see) but she is on crutches. That's a blow, for the visitors and perhaps England too.

  6. Spurs seal passage

    Coventry United 0-4 Tottenham

    If there was any doubt about the outcome at the Butts Park Arena, there isn't now.

    Lucy Quinn's classy cross finds full-back Lucia Leon all alone to tap home at the far post.

    That's Spurs into the quarter-finals - will they have a short trip to face North London rivals Arsenal to savour?


    Bristol City 0-5 Everton

    A classy display from Everton, who are now scheduled to host Chelsea in the quarter-finals on Sunday, 15 March.

  8. Post update

    Bristol City 0-5 Everton

    There will be three minutes of added time at Ashton Gate, and if Bristol City score five goals in that time, I'll eat the woolly hat that's been keeping my head warm in the press box this evening.

  9. Post update

    Bristol City 0-5 Everton

    The Toffees have great pedigree in this competition, having won it twice, reaching five finals in total.

    Tonight has been another memorable night for them in the cup.

  10. Post update

    Bristol City 0-5 Everton

    It's all gone a bit flat at Ashton Gate now, as we enter the final five minutes of this tie.

    Willie Kirk's latest return to Bristol City has been a very happy one for the Everton boss.

  11. Post update

    Coventry United 0-3 Tottenham

    Spurs have taken their feet off the gas in the second half at Coventry, who have come into the game more.

    The visitors still almost had a fourth goal but Ashleigh Neville's effort against her former club was ruled out for offside.

  12. Post update

    Bristol City 0-5 Everton

    Bristol City Women.

    Tonight's attendance at Ashton Gate has been confirmed as 1,889.

    That's a fair bit higher than what Bristol City Women are used to at their usual home, the Stoke Gifford Stadium and - on a weeknight as well - you'd imagine that's a boost for the club on what will otherwise go down as a night to forget.

  13. Post update

    Bristol City 0-5 Everton

    We've got 15 minutes remaining at Ashton Gate and, for Bristol City, you sense this is about pride from here onwards. They'll want a goal of their own to reward the fans who have turned up.

  14. Post update

    One of the big takeaways from that quarter-final draw is that the 'big three' battling it out for the Women's Super League title - Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal - have all avoided each other.

    But, should the other ties go to form, they will each have tough tasks against three other top-seven WSL sides in Reading, Everton and Tottenham.

  15. Post update

    Bristol City 0-5 Everton

    This would be Everton's biggest winning scoreline in a competitive game since a 6-1 victory at Durham in the cup in March 2018.

  16. Who plays who next

    Women's FA Cup quarter-final draw

    So, to recap, here's the draw for the quarter-finals that was made a few minutes ago on Radio 5 live.

    Crystal Palace or Brighton v Birmingham City

    Bristol City or Everton v Chelsea

    Arsenal or Lewes v Coventry United or Tottenham

    Leicester City or Reading v Manchester City

    A couple of those 'ors' look a bit redundant, though, with the scorelines the way they are in Bristol and Coventry...

  17. Cain screamer makes it five

    Bristol City 0-5 Everton

    This is a stunning goal, as Hannah Cain volleys in a brilliant fifth.

    Everton's players won't know it yet but that goal surely seals a tie at home to Chelsea in the last eight, as we were just learning from the draw.

  18. Post update

    Which leaves...

    Leicester or Reading v Manchester City

  19. Post update

    Arsenal or Lewes v Coventry United or Tottenham

    Big chance of a North London derby there....

  20. Post update

    Bristol City or Everton v Chelsea.

    So, Everton v Chelsea then seeing as the Toffees have just gone 5-0 up...
