Manchester City women have been drawn away at Manchester United in the FA Cup as their defence of the trophy begins with a derby.

The blues won the trophy last season by beating West Ham in the final, but face a tough test against the newly promoted reds, who beat the blues in the League Cup earlier this season. It will be City’s first match in the competition, with the final being held on 9th May.

The tie will be played on the weekend of 26th January, around the same date as the men’s fourth round match against Fulham.
