Women’s FA Cup Finalists Confirmed: Dreams Crushed for Chelsea, Dreams made a reality for Spurs

Last year's Women's FA Cup, Chelsea v Manchester United.

AFTER a weekend of Women’s FA Cup Semi-Finals, the Finalists have been confirmed, with a brand new winner coming to the tournament for the first time since 2012.

Tottenham Hotspur came out on top against Leicester City and the most surprising of the weekend, Manchester United found a way to defeat reigning champions, Chelsea – destroying their treble hopes before manager, Emma Hayes, leaves the club at the end of the season.

Leicester City struck first against Spurs, Jutta Rantala hit the ball on the edge of the box and sent it flying into the back of the net.

The game looked to be in the Foxes favour who were named the underdogs for the game despite breaking their own records all season in their FA Cup until the 84th minute.

Due to a mistake by Leicester’s defence, it led Jessica Naz to make it level for the Lilywhites.

Sent in the bottom right corner by Naz’s right foot, it left the game going into extra time and all to play for from both teams.

Martha Thomas booked Spurs a spot in their first ever final under the Wembley arch with the game ending 2-1.

Chelsea travelled to Leigh Sports Village to play Manchester United in the second game of the Semi Finals.

It could be said that United went into this match-up as the underdogs due to never beating Chelsea in their history, but they shocked the blues and sent them packing in the FA Cup.

Lucia Garcia scored 44 seconds into the game, with a brilliant assist by Ella Toone something no one expected certainly not, Emma Hayes and Chelsea.

Rachel Williams became United’s golden girl as she doubled the Red Devils advantage, assisted by Leah Galton which was ultimately the goal that won the game.

It took Chelsea the rest of the first half to find a reply to United’s goals, Lauren James scored in extra time of the first half, meaning all was to play for in the second half.

The game ended 2-1 and ended Chelsea and Emma Hayes’ treble dreams on her last season with the club before departing to manage the US Women’s National Team.

Tottenham Hotspur will now play Manchester United at the home of football, Wembley Stadium on Sunday 31st May.
