Kirsty Hanson scored twice as Manchester United thumped Burnley 6-0 in the fourth round of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup.

Millie Turner opened the scoring for United, who then doubled their lead when Ella Toone netted a long-range effort following a one-two with Ona Batlle.

Then, Jess Sigsworth’s shot hit the bar and the rebound fell to Hanson, who headed it home to make it 6-0.

Jill Roord claimed a first-half hat-trick as Arsenal Women beat Gillingham Ladies 10-0 to reach the fifth round.

Roord scored the opener after just seven minutes after Gillingham goalkeeper Cara Davies palmed an effort from Kim Little into the path of the midfielder.

The Gunners got their second when Beth Mead’s cross from the right floated past Davies and into the net before captain Little comfortably slotted the ball into the bottom corner after 15 minutes.

To celebrate her 100th appearance, the fourth of the afternoon came from Vivianne Miedema, who tapped a close-range shot home moments later, while Roord doubled her tally with a solo effort to make it 5-0.

The Gunners made it seven after the restart as Anna Patten fired a close-range effort into the bottom corner for her first goal at the club.

Substitutes Danielle van de Donk and Jordan Nobbs came off the bench to guide Arsenal to their eighth and ninth goals of the game within the closing 20 minutes.

Arsenal made it to double figures in the final stages as Mead’s deflected effort swung past Davies to complete the scoring as the cup record-holders progressed into the fifth round.
