Ireland's Louise Quinn scored a dramatic 91st minute winner against Everton to book Arsenal's place in the FA Women's Cup final.

Everton were the Gunners' semi-final opponents and the game was tightly poised at 1-1 after Danielle Carter's 25th minute opener was cancelled out in the second half by a Toffees penalty.

The winner came in time added on when Quinn rose to head her side in front from a corner.

Arsenal have won the competition 14 times, more than any other club and Quinn and her teammates will be looking to make it 15 when they meet London rivals Chelsea in the Wembley final on May 5.

The defender's heroics have come off the back of a mixed international break which saw Ireland beat Slovakia 2-1 last Friday and lose to Netherlands on Tuesday.

Chelsea's passage to the final was a lot more straightforward, with two unanswered Fran Kirby goals enough to see the blues past Manchester City.
