Everton Women came from behind to stun free-scoring Chelsea in the last eight of the Women's FA Cup.
The reigning Women's Super League champions looked to be on their way to a routine cup win at Goodison Park when Erin Cuthbert side-footed past Toffees keeper Sandy MacIver in only the fourth minute.
MacIver had to do well to deny Pernille Harder shortly afterwards and Fran Kirby's header on the rebound was cleared off the line while the busy keeper would keep out further efforts from Harder and Kirby later in the half.
However, Everton skipper Lucy Graham levelled the tie with a diving header off Ingrid Moe's cross and new signing Valerie Gauvin turned the game on its head midway through the second half when she headed home.
Everton will now take on the winners of the Brighton vs Birmingham City tie on Wednesday.

MacIver some great saves there. An Everton team coming back from behind? Must be something in the water on Merseyside. Looking forward to the semi.

A tough semi final, but lets hope they can win.
The Spirit of The Blues is flowing around EFC, long may it last.

Anyway, after being paupers and losing all our best players to big spenders, we've now realised it takes peanuts to be competitive in the women's game and so we have a duty to be so. I mean it's only a few hundred grand for the world record transfer fee.
If you look at the England squad, half the team has been through the Everton team at some point, the likes of Duggan, Paris etc but we just couldn't keep hold of them. Good to see we this should be behind us, forgetting the girl who left for Man City in the summer.
