    This one is live on BBC 1 from 17:10 this evening (assume kick off is 17:30) for anyone interested.

    Should be a walk over for Man City as West Ham have defied the odds to reach the final

    I'll be watching it. Hammers done really well in their first season in the women's game, would be amazing if they done the unthinkable.

    Even with all of the ex-Sunderland players playing for City, would love to see West Ham do it.

    Very unnecessary as it was obvious it was a fair tackle

    West Ham going for a more direct approach but it's working for them, they could have been in a couple of times. They've had the better of the (half) chances.

    Indeed. Man City are obviously trying to get in behind the West Ham defence but with little joy so far

    Nah, they're not doing much atm are they.

    Oh my f*cking God what a save from Bardsey. Hammers should be 1-0 up, outstanding save.

    Superb play from West Ham there and a decent save from the keeper. Either side of her though and WHU are in front

    Been a decent first half. West Ham have been the better side, defended really well and created opportunities at the other end. The only concern for them is that Man City will have a superior fitness level and can probably bide their time. An early West Ham goal in the 2nd half would make things very interesting

    West Ham doing really well tbf. Could argue they should be ahead.

    Looked like that Hammers player was caught in the box as well. They were saying dive but I'd like to see another slow mo replay.

    In actual speed I thought it was a penalty, in every replay I thought it was a penalty and both of the commentators said she dived. There was definitely contact

    Now the pundits are saying no contact as well. Must be my eyes

    It looked like she just caught her with her leading foot. She did kind of toe poke the ground and then go down, but it did look like there was contact.

    So you and me both then, should have gone to specsavers cos I thought there was a bit contact.

    Shocking goalkeeping there. Gutted that West Hams hard work has been undone by a tame long range effort

    Cruel on WHU tbf. Next 10-15 minutes ate crucial, we'll see how both teams react to that.

    Just saw the replay, big deflection off the West Ham defenders back?

    I think it just moved in the air. Keeper should still do better.

    The goal has killed West Ham. That press we saw in the first half has gone and Man City will probably bag a couple more in this

    Aye you're right think it just moved in the air. All City now looks like West Ham are tiring.

    Game over. The Hammers certainly haven't embarrassed themselves though even if City add another goal or two.
