City's FA Women's Cup tie against Aston Villa has been rearranged.

Our fourth round clash at the Academy Stadium will now take place on Saturday 17 April - a day earlier than previously scheduled - at 13:00 (UK time).

The clash marks the beginning City's defence of our trophy, having won our second successive FA Cup (and third in four seasons) in November with an extra-time victory over Everton.

The 2020/21 competition was initially paused in January in line with new government restrictions, but recommenced in March and early April.

If City progress from the tie, the remaining three rounds are due to be completed at the beginning of the 2021/22 campaign.
