Can Chelsea reach another final?

After beating Reading 3-1, at the Select Car Leasing Stadium, they are through to the semi-finals.

The other three teams to be joined by Chelsea are Manchester United, Brighton and Hove Albion and Aston Villa.

Aston Villa beat last year’s finalist Manchester City 2-1 with a 97th minute Rachel Daly winner.

This has put her on 6 goals in the competition already.

Aston Villa have been the dark horse in most competitions this season with them also currently sitting 5th in the WSl.

Can they make Wembley and go on to win the FA Cup.

A team that will be trying to stop them is the lowest ranked team left in the competition, Brighton.

Brighton and Hove Albion, beat the Championship side Birmingham 2-0 away to put them in the last 4. With both goals coming in the first half.

The Seagulls have found it hard in the WSL this season, whilst sitting 11th only 1 point off the bottom, but they have definitely shown their qualities in the FA cup.

Manchester United in the last round played the lowest ranked team in the competition, championship side, Lewes FC.

Lewes, went into the game with so much excitement and confidence but after conceding in the 8th minute it turned into a routine win for the Reds. Ending 3-1.

The semi-final matches are;

Aston Villa Vs Chelsea

Manchester United Vs Brighton and Hove Albion

These games will be played on the Sunday 16th April whilst the final will be played on the Sunday 14th May.

The Blues have already beaten the Villians this season so will have full confidence in themselves that they will be able to get through to the final, but with the form Villa are in, it will not be easy.

Manchester United have already beaten the Seagulls 4-0 at home this season so they are looking for a repeat.

Who do you believe will lift the FA Cup trophy at Wembley this season?
