Late own goal takes City through
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 19 Apr 2019
 
Manchester City will play West Ham Utd in this season's SSE Women's FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium after coming through a dramatic semi final on Sunday.
 
Holders Chelsea made the trip to the Academy Stadium to face Manchester City in a repeat of their semi final meeting twelve months earlier. Chelsea had of course triumphed on that occasion but it was Nick Cushing's side who went through this time with a 1-0 victory.
 
Buoyed by their recent success in the UEFA Women's Champions League quarter finals against Paris Saint Germain, Chelsea started the game confidently with Erin Cuthbert and Fran Kirby both forcing saves from Karen Bardsley.
 
City weathered the early storm and began to fashion chances as the half wore on, going closest when Nikita Parris nipped in to take the ball past Ann-Katrin Berger, but the England striker found the angle to be too narrow and her shot went across the face of goal.
 
With so much at stake, the second half was a largely dull affair with neither side willing to take too many risks during the opening stages.
 
The game exploded into life however with fifteen minutes remaining, after Chelsea had been awarded a free kick midway inside the City half. Cuthbert drilled the ball into the area, where Kirby threw herself headlong for a diving header which looped against the bar.
 
Three minutes later, Sophie Ingle's pass released Cuthbert on goal, she slid her shot past Bardsley but it hit the inside of the post and rolled along the goal line without crossing it.
 
Extra time was looming as the game went into injury time but disaster was to strike for the Blues. Demi Stokes crossed from the left and, although under little pressure, Magdalena Eriksson miscued her clearance and - to Chelsea's horror - shot into the top corner of the net and City were in front.
 
There was little time for Chelsea to recover, although Jennifer Beattie did make an important block to deny Kirby, and it is Manchester City who will have the chance to lift the trophy for the second time at Wembley on Saturday 4th May.
