Arsenal reached the Women’s FA Cup semi-finals as Scotland winger Lisa Evans’ clinical late hat-trick helped them to a 4-0 win over Tottenham.
Spurs held off the hosts resolutely until defender Ashleigh Neville gifted possession to Jordan Nobbs, whose superb lob opened the scoring.
Evans then netted three times in quick succession to seal the win late on.
Arsenal’s Australia forward Caitlin Foord’s looping header had hit the bar in an otherwise quiet first half.
Spurs’ new signing, the United States star Alex Morgan, was on the bench for the visitors but did not come on for her debut.
The two-time World Cup winner watched on from the bench on a rain-hit evening at Meadow Park, where for long periods Spurs had frustrated their north London rivals.
