Arsenal breezed into the Women's FA Cup quarter-finals with a resounding 9-0 victory over Championship side Crystal Palace in manager Joe Montemurro’s final game in charge, as Katie McCabe once again found the net.

Gunners captain Kim Little opened the scoring from the penalty spot, Beth Mead doubled the advantage before Danielle Van De Donk then scored from close range moments before half-time.

Noelle Maritz made it four on the hour mark and Jordan Nobbs swept home for 5-0.

Vivianne Miedema headed home a sixth before Jill Roord tapped home on her final appearance.

Maritz completed a brace and McCabe made it eight different goalscorers with a stoppage-time free-kick.

Casey Stoney's Manchester United reign ended with a 3-2 Women’s FA Cup defeat to Championship winners Leicester at Leigh Sports Village.

Leicester came from 2-1 down to win it with quickfire goals from Hannah Cain and Natasha Flint in the second half and ensure they will be in the quarter-final line-up when the competition resumes next season, in with a chance of emulating their club colleagues who won the men’s competition on Saturday.

United carved out their first opportunity within the opening two minutes when Kirsty Hanson crossed to Leah Galton at the back post, but her header went back across goal rather than into the net.

Hanson and Galton were causing the Foxes all sorts of problems in the wide areas and the breakthrough came in the 31st minute when another driving run from Galton made space for Jess Sigsworth to turn her marker in the box and smash home past Kirstie Levell.

Leicester were sitting deep and defending in numbers but grabbed a goal just before the half-time whistle with their first real shot on target. Shannon O’Brien showed quick feet on the edge of the box to hit her low shot on the turn into the bottom right hand corner past Mary Earps to go in even at the break.

The visitors came out confidently in the second half and a clever through-ball from Flint in the 54th minute played in Cain, but her shot from a tight angle rippled the side netting.

Just four minutes later Jane Ross drove infield and hooked a shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the box to put the home side ahead once more. Half-time substitute Ona Batlle almost made it three on 65 minutes but her looping header was well cleared off the line by Sam Tierney.

The game was becoming end to end and the Foxes turned the game on its head with 20 minutes left. First, a sloppy back-pass from United defender Maria Thorisdottir was pounced on by Cain, who slotted calmly past Earps.

And less than a minute later, Flint got the better of Millie Turner in the box and sneaked the ball inside the far post to put the visitors 3-2 ahead. Despite a flurry of corners in the closing stages, United could not find an equaliser and the Foxes capped off an excellent season with victory.

Manchester City cruised into the quarter-finals with a 5-1 thumping of West Ham.

Ellen White opened the scoring after 15 minutes with a poacher’s finish from Caroline Weir’s perfect delivery after an Alex Greenwood free-kick had hit the wall.

The visitors responded well and were back on level terms within two minutes, Anouk Denton heading in her first senior goal from Hawa Cissoko’s right-wing cross.

City retook the lead six minutes before the break, however, when Lauren Hemp and White combined to set up Janine Beckie, and the holders never looked back.

Neat interplay between second-half substitutes Sam Mewis and Rose Lavelle led to a third for the hosts on 74 minutes, Lavelle dribbling forward and slotting past helpless West Ham keeper Mackenzie Arnold.

Two stoppage-time strikes then added further gloss to the result. First Mewis found the target with a shot on the turn from Hemp’s left-wing cross and then Lavelle turned provider for Hemp to seal the rout with a superb effort into the top corner.
