27 February, 2017 — By Steve Barnett

HOLDERS Arsenal Ladies will host north London rivals Tottenham in the fifth round of the Women’s FA Cup.

Spurs, who play in the FA Women’s Premier League South, are one of only two sides from below the Women’s Super League left in this season’s competition. They secured their place in the fifth round by beating WSL 2 side Brighton 1-0 on Sunday thanks to Bianca Baptiste’s stunning goal.

Top-flight sides now enter at the last-16 stage, scheduled to be played on Sunday March 19. The day of derbies will also see Birmingham play West Brom and Liverpool play Everton.
