Women's FA Cup: Chelsea Ladies 2-0 Manchester City Women

Fran Kirby scored once in each half as Chelsea held off their closest rivals

Chelsea kept their bid for a treble alive, and ended rivals Manchester City’s in the process, with a deserved Women’s FA Cup semi-final victory.

Fran Kirby’s brace sent Chelsea through to face Arsenal in 5 May’s Wembley final, after the Gunners beat Everton.

The in-form forward took advantage when England captain Steph Houghton misjudged a long ball early on.

Kirby also raced clear and calmly slotted home after Jen Beattie’s similar error in the second half.
