West Ham v Aston Villa. Who’ll get to the Vitality Women’s FA Cup quarter-final? by Michelle
West Ham United and Aston Villa go head to head this weekend in the fifth round of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup.
The two Women’s Super League sides have already met this season. The Hammers were triumphant on that occasion with a 2-1 win at the Poundland Bescot Stadium. Early goals from Dagny Brynjarsdottir and Honoka Hayashi was enough to earn victory.
West Ham come into this match having not won in their last three league matches. They are currently 7th in the league. Meanwhile, Aston Villa were outstanding in a 6-2 victory over Brighton in their last match. It saw them move up to fifth in the table, 6 points behind the top 4 in the WSL!
The FA Cup offers an opportunity for both sides to challenge for silverware. Despite not being favourites for the competition, both teams will fancy their chances of going on a cup run in the coming months ahead. A place in the quarter finals is at stake on Sunday.
Who do you think has the upper-hand on this one? I quite fancy Villa myself..
