The England Women's boss Phil Neville was in attendance to cast an eye over some of the payers who would be going to the Women's World Cup this June in France and saw a distinctly cagey start from both teams as the second period commenced.

Under no pressure, Eriksson inadvertently turned Demi Stokes' cross past Blues goalkeeper Ann-Katrin Berger at City's Academy Stadium.

Chelsea had enjoyed the better of the chances, with Fran Kirby and Erin Cuthbert both striking the woodwork.

"Our men's first team have won today and it gives them an opportunity to continue trying to be successful, we've won today and we're in an FA Cup final". In the 35th minute, she leapt highest to head the ball to Tessa Wullaert, who in turn found Georgia Stanway.

Nikita Parris had first City's shot on target then Caroline Weir had an effort blocked.

With a quarter of an hour left in the game, Chelsea hit the woodwork twice. Moments later the post came to City's rescue as Cuthbert hit the inside of the post before rolling to safety.

"Knowing the way that we work at Manchester City, we'll all just concentrate on our next game and make sure we win that one".

In the 93rd minute, City broke forward through Parris. Eriksson attempted to clear the danger, but instead sliced the ball into her own net for City to take a late lead!

"To have lost that way, for a player [Eriksson] who has been outstanding this year, I'm so gutted for her".
