Same four in semi finals!
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 18 Jan 2020
The quarter finals of the FA Women's Continental League Cup took place this week and there were no surprises in any of the four ties, meaning that the semi final line up will be the same as last season.
Cup holders Manchester City faced an awkward tie away to Championship high fliers Sheffield Utd but booked their place in the last four with a 4-0 victory. Pauline Bremer made the breakthrough seven minutes before half time when she gave City the lead and the striker netted a second ahead of the break. Laura Coombs made it three during the second half, before Bremer completed her hat-trick in the dying minutes.
Arsenal have never failed to reach at least the semi final stage of the competition in its history and they kept up this proud record with a 1-0 win against Reading FC Women. The Gunners had the better of the chances, although Fara Williams did strike the post for Reading early in the second half. Rachael Laws made a string of good saves at the other end but with extra time looming, Kim Little was on hand to slot home a Lisa Evans cross for the only goal of the game.
Chelsea ended the hopes of Championship leaders Aston Villa with a 3-1 victory. The Blues attacked solidly throughout the first half but were frustrated by stubborn Villa resistance until ten minutes after the break, when Magdalena Eriksson headed them in front. Ji So-Yun added a second with nine minutes remaining and although Kerri Welsh gave Villa hope when she reduced the arrears, Emily Murphy sealed the win for Chelsea in injury time. Remarkably, Chelsea have never reached the Final of the Cup but are in the last four for the third time in four years.
Manchester Utd have reached the semi finals for the second successive season after they defeated Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1. In an entertaining game, Abbie McManus gave United a lead which they held until half time despite both teams exchanging chances. The Seagulls then ought to have levelled after the break when Ini Umotong hit the bar from the penalty spot and the miss was compounded when Jane Ross doubled United's advantage with fifteen minutes remaining. Brighton were awarded another penalty and this time, Kayleigh Green successfully converted to pull a goal back. United were able to close the game out to take themselves one step away from a first major Final.
