Man City came from a goal down at half time to run out 4-1 winners in the Manchester derby.

Katie Zelem had given United a first half lead, scoring straight from a corner, before Gareth Taylor introduced Caroline Weir and Hayley Raso at the break to great effect. Two quick goals from Lauren Hemp and Ellen White turned the tie on its head, before Weir popped up with her customary derby day goal.

Substitute Khadija Shaw wrapped up the win with a poacher’s finish moments after entering the fray from the bench.

Ipswich became the lowest-ranked side left in the FA Cup – and the first third-tier side to reach the quarter finals since Charlton Athletic in 2017/18 – after a penalty shootout victory over fellow third-tier team Southampton.

Playing in front of a record crowd at the Goldstar Ground, substitute Anna Grey broke the deadlock in the second half of extra time with a fabulous volley.

However, Southampton levelled in dramatic circumstances at the death, goalkeeper Kayla Rendell heading home from a corner to send the contest to spot kicks.

But it was the turn of Ipswich goalkeeper Sarah Quantrill to be the hero during the shootout, saving two penalties as the Tractor Girls booked their place in the quarter finals for the first time in their history.

Arsenal ran out 4-0 winners over Championship leaders Liverpool courtesy of a pair of stunning solo efforts from Katie McCabe and Caitlin Foord.

The tier-two side went toe to toe with the WSL table toppers for much of the clash, but were made to pay for their lack of cutting edge by two fabulous goals in the space of three minutes.

Foord netted the opening goal from close range, before McCabe unleashed a thunderous volley and Foord found the top corner with a half volley. Kim Little added a fourth in the second half with a run from deep and tidy finish.

A bit closer than we would have liked but United advance past the fifth round for the first time in history as @JayBradford91 leads her 150th game in charge and a 4-2 win over WBA Women

Coventry avoided upset against third-tier West Brom as the Championship side came out on top in a six goal thriller.

Alanah Mann’s first ever senior goal, and a stunning long-range drive from Nat Johnson gave Coventry a 2-0 lead, before Shannon Stamps halved the deficit. The visitors’ two goal advantage was regained on the stroke of half time by Katie Wilkinson’s finish from a corner.

Natalie Haigh saw red for Coventry in the final 13 minutes, and Leigh Dugmore dispatched the resultant spot kick to ensure a nervy finish to the game. Nerves were calmed three minutes from time as Olivia Ferguson turned home a teasing low cross.

Through to the quarter-finals! ?

— Birmingham City Women (@BCFCwomen) February 27, 2022

The WSL’s bottom side edged past Championship outfit Durham to secure their progression to the last eight.

Birmingham – who won the competition back in 2012 – had to wait until the 78th minute for the breakthrough, captain Louise Quinn heading home Veatriki Sarri’s corner to seal the victory.

Durham piled on the pressure in the dying stages, but failed to break Birmingham’s resolute defence down.

A spectacular finish from Ji ??#WomensFACup @ChelseaFCW

FA Cup holders Chelsea booked their place in the FA Cup quarter finals in emphatic style, hitting Leicester for seven at Kingsmeadow on Saturday.

Pernille Harder and Sam Kerr both netted braces and contributed five assists between them. Ji So-yun, Aniek Nouwen and Bethany England were all on the scoresheet, with Nouwen’s goal her first in a Chelsea shirt.

FT. Job done in London!

Strikes from @KenzaDali & @annaanvegard secure Everton’s place in the quarter-finals of the #WomensFACup

Beaten 2019/20 finalists Everton booked their place in the last eight with a 2-0 win over Championship outfit Charlton. The result represents a first victory for interim bosses Chris Roberts and Claire Ditchburn.

Everton took the lead just after the half hour mark in sensational style, Kenza Dali grabbing her first goal for the club with a fabulous curling effort from the left flank.

Anna Anvegard doubled her side’s lead from close range at the second time of asking, her initial header from Toni Duggan’s teasing cross drawing a terrific save from Eartha Cumings before the Swedish international gobbled up the rebound.

IN THE HAT! ?@dagnybrynjars goal in the first half of extra-time is enough to see us progress! ⚒️#REAWHU 0-1 | @VitalityWFACup

West Ham ensured their safe passage through to the FA Cup late eight with an extra time victory over fellow WSL side Reading.

After the 90 minutes had finished goalless, Dagny Brynjarsdottir continued her fine season for the Hammers, collecting the rebound from a blocked shot and firing into the roof of the net to break the deadlock.
