    We have seen a different side to Arsenal. Was their performance as good as in their first two games? No.

    But we saw a patient side to them and they went through the gears and cranked up the pressure when it was required.


    Arsenal 4-0 Tottenham

    It’s all over and Arsenal have run out as clear winners in the end, after what was initially a closely-fought first 70 minutes.

    Their bid for a record 15th FA Cup goes on.

    Both sides make two further changes. Arsenal bring on Lotte Wubbey-Moy and Leonie Maier for Victoria Schnaderbeck and Noelle Maritz.

    Spurs’ fourth and fifth changes see Angela Addison and Lucia Leon come on for Ria Percival and Kit Graham.

    As Spurs have now made all five of their subs, we will not see Alex Morgan make her debut today.

  11. Martyn Thompson:Jordan Nobbs is just a genius…her awareness and vision for that goal were fantastic and a perfect finish too.

  12. Post update

    Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham

    The two quickfire goals came in a flash and, all of a sudden, 70-odd minutes of hard work from Spurs defensively was undone.


    Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham

    Spurs’ co-head coaches Karen Hills and Juan Amoros respond to the two goals with two changes. Rianna Dean and Lucy Quinn replace Rosella Ayane and Ashleigh Neville.

    No sign of new signing Alex Morgan yet.

    Not long afterwards, Arsenal bring on Malin Gut and Beth Mead for Jordan Nobbs and Vivianne Miedema.

    Tottenham were masters of their own downfall. One unforced error and Jordan Nobbs knew that Becky Spencer was off her line and it was a perfectly executed lob.

    The second was exactly what Arsenal wanted to keep the pressure on. As soon as they are on top they suffocate you.

  15. GOAL: Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham

    Lisa Evans

    Game over. Ruthless. Brutal.

    Arsenal have two in two minutes and they’re surely through to the semi-finals.

    Vivianne Miedema slips a lovely through ball in toLisa Evansin the area and Evans slots in to the bottom corner. The assist is brilliant, the finish is calm, the Gunners are 2-0 up.

  18. SUBSTITUTION (Spurs)

    Arsenal 0-0 Tottenham

    Spurs midfielder Chloe Peplow can’t continue. She’s clutching her ankle. Josie Green comes on instead.

    We’ve got 20 minutes of the 90 to go. Extra time awaits, unless someone can find a winner beforehand.

  19. Post update

    Arsenal 0-0 Tottenham

    Spurs midfielder Chloe Peplow has picked up a knock to her ankle but is persevering for the time being.

    On the bench, I don’t think we’ve seen Alex Morgan sent to warm up just yet. She hasn’t played of course for a year, having given birth to her daughter on 7 May.

  20. Post update

    Arsenal 0-0 Tottenham

    In case you’re wondering, the winner of this finely-balanced tie will face either Leicester City or holders Manchester City in the last four on Thursday.

    That semi-final will be live on BBC Two – just like this game is.
