Tottenham Ladies’ reward for shocking Brighton in the FA Cup is a trip to north London rivals – and current holders – Arsenal.

Bianca Baptiste got the only goal of the game, slotting home from Wendy Martin’s assist, as third-tier Tottenham ousted second-tier Albion.

Arsenal and the rest of the Women’s Super League One sides join the competition at this stage.

Tottenham are one of just two sides outside of the two Super League divisions left in the cup.

The tie will be played on Sunday, March 19.

It is not the only derby pulled out of the famous velvet bag, with Liverpool set to host Everton and Birmingham City facing West Bromwich Albion.
