The SSE Women’s FA Cup Fifth Round Draw

  • +1

The draw for the fifth round of the SSE Women’s FA Cup was made live on the Sportsday programme on BBC News on Monday evening.

Following the weekend’s ties in the fourth round, of which eight were postponed due to the cold weather, former Lionesses Rachel Brown-Finnis and Sue Smith were on hand to make the draw for the last 16.

And the draw sees current holders Chelsea host 14-time winners Arsenal in what looks to be an early runner for tie of the round.

Following their win over Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday, Manchester United have been paired at home with London Bees while Manchester City will head in the opposite direction to the capital to face Tottenham.

Fifth round ties will take place on Sunday 17 February, with those postponed fourth round ties scheduled for Sunday 10 February.
