It will be Westfield Matilda against Westfield Matildas when Chelsea take on West Ham in the first semi-final. Mackenzie Arnold and Emily van Egmond will face Sam Kerr on Thursday, February 4th at 4:00am AEDT. 


These sides have already played in the FA WSL once this season with the Blues coming away with a 3-2 win. Kerr had a field day, scoring all three of Chelsea's goals to record her first hat trick for the club.
