Scotland midfielder Kim Little hit her fifth hat-trick of the season as Arsenal beat Doncaster Belles 5-0 to reach the FA Women's Cup semi-finals.

Everton also reached the semis, England striker Jody Handley scoring the winner in a 2-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers.

Nottingham Forest reached the last eight with a 1-0 win against South West Combination team Yeovil Town.

Chelsea, who beat Millwall Lionesses 3-1, will visit Aston Villa after their 2-1 win at Curzon Ashton.

FA Women's Cup quarter-finals

Arsenal 5-0 Doncaster Rovers Belles

The Cup holders had a great start as England left winger Rachel Yankey shot them in front after just six minutes.

Little doubled the lead seven minutes before the interval and then hit her second goal 17 minutes into the second half.

And with her 33rd goal of the season, scored in the 80th minute, the Scotland star put the result beyond any doubt, with an 89th-minute own goal completing the scoring.

Everton 2-1 Blackburn Rovers

Three days after losing the Premier League Cup final to Leeds, Everton had an early FA Cup setback as Danielle Sheen gave Blackburn a ninth-minute lead.

But the Toffees bounced back, Toni Duggan equalising in the 32nd minute and Handley hitting what proved the winner six minutes after the break.

Round Five

Chelsea 3-1 Millwall Lionesses (aet)

A hard-fought contest went into extra time after Drew Spence's 24th-minute opener for the home side had been levelled within 10 minutes by Ann-Marie Heatherson.

Two goals in quick succession then saw Chelsea go through, Dunia Susi scoring in the 110th minute and Emma Whitter hitting the third two minutes later.

Yeovil Town 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Andi Bell hit the 63rd-minute winner, but the battling non-league team almost forced extra time as Anusia Rourke and Emma Bazell both went close to equalising.

Curzon Ashton 1-2 Aston Villa

Nicky McLeod cancelled out Kim Farrow's early goal for the visitors, but Dani Petrovic's second half strike took Villa through.
