The FA Women’s Cup Fourth Round draw:

The FA Women’s Cup fourth round draw was made live on the FA WSL instagram and there are many tasty ties.

 

There are three ties between FA WSL 1 teams with two of them should be really tight while Arsenal should beat Yeovil

FA WSL 1 v FA WSL 1

Reading v Birmingham City

Yeovil Town v Arsenal

Everton v Bristol City

 

Holders Man City will be away future Tier 1 team Brighton and Hove, but with their current playing staff, it would need a huge performance for the Seagull to upset the Citizens. Liverpool and Watford played a pre-season friendly and the result should be very similar to that game. Chelsea are favourite to beat London Bees at the Hive but will remember being eliminated in probably the biggest FA WSL cup shock in history a couple of seasons ago.

Sunderland will be favourite against Derby or Brighouse with a two or three divisions gap.

Two games between FA WSL 2 sides and two tight games expected as FA WSL2 is a very compact league where all teams can beat each other.

Tottenham Hotspur v Doncaster Rovers Belles

 

There is potential for three upsets in games between FA WSL2 and FA WPL teams as the gap between the middle range FA WSL 2 side and the FA WPL top side is minimal. Milwall v Coventry should be very interesting

A game that could be the FA WPL play-off final come May between two top FA WPL side with the ambition to get promoted to Tier 2 at the end of the season.
