Manchester City (Women) 4-0 Everton (Women): City cruise to FA Cup semi-finals

Lauren Hemp played a major role in Manchester City’s victory

Manchester City reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup with a landslide victory over Everton of the Women’s Super League.

Lauren Hemp opened the scoring in the 35th minute from close range and added a superb second shortly after the restart.

Caroline Weir scored City’s third goal in the 61st minute from 25 yards.

And Ellen White crossed later as City reached the bottom four for the eighth consecutive season.

Everton hoped to salvage something from a disastrous season in which two managers had already come and gone.

But City’s quality showed when Lucy Bronze hit the post in the early stages and skipper White was denied a fine save by Sandy McIver late in the first half.

The result means City’s attempt to complete the cup double continues after beating rivals Chelsea in the League Cup final just over two weeks ago.

Manchester City and Everton will face each other again in their next match, which takes place on Wednesday night on WSL.
