The Women’s FA Cup semifinals begin Saturday with a contest between West Ham and Manchester City, with a rematch of the 2021 final between Chelsea and Arsenal awaiting fans on Sunday.

Saturday’s matchup will begin at 7:15 a.m. ET on ESPN+. The last meeting between the two teams on April 2 resulted in a 2-0 win for Manchester City. West Ham are headed into the game having lost back-to-back Women’s Super League games, while City is on an eight-game winning streak and looking for a fourth FA Cup.

To reach Sunday’s rematch, Arsenal won its FA Cup quarterfinal 4-0 against Coventry United, while Chelsea defeated Birmingham City 5-0 in its quarterfinal.

The two sides last met in February, and that match ended in a 0-0 draw. In the 2021 FA Cup final in December, though, Chelsea defeated Arsenal 3-0, helped by two second-half goals from Sam Kerr.

Arsenal has won the most FA Cup titles overall with 14, but its most recent FA Cup title came in 2016.

The two teams will face off Sunday at 7:30 a.m. ET on ESPN+.
