The competition, which started in December 2020, had to be paused mid-season due to the pandemic and the fifth round was played four months ago in May.
The quarter-finals, semi-finals and final were pushed back to this season and Spurs go into tonight’s clash with their north London rivals as huge underdogs.
Arsenal have started the season in fine form, winning all seven of their matches across the Champions League and Women’s Super League under new boss Jonas Eidevall.
Tottenham, though, have also started the season well and sit second behind Arsenal on goal difference in the WSL after three games.
“It’s the FA Cup, there’s no pressure on us and if we stick to our game plan and do our jobs, you never know,” said Skinner.
“It’s one game, 11v11, anything can happen. The competition itself has always given you surprises that’s what makes it as exciting as it is.
“For us, we had an opportunity to progress last season to where we are now, and you never know what can happen. Who wouldn’t want to go on a good cup run and play a final at Wembley?” Skinner added: “The FA Cup is historic.
“Everyone gets behind it because the stories and results it produces are unlike any other competition.
“In the men’s game, you see big teams coming up against smaller teams who are leagues below them who produce incredible performances on the day.
“We have got to go into every game at the moment with the belief in what we have set out to achieve which helps to keep momentum going.”
