Wolverhampton Wanderers have been drawn against London club Watford in the semifinals of the FA Cup after their shock win over Manchester United on Saturday night.

The Midlands club got the better of Manchester United in their quarterfinal tie at the Molineux.

Wolves defeated the Red Devils 2-1 at home to continue their quest for a first FA Cup title in 59 years.

The four-time FA Cup winners have not won the trophy since their fourth triumph in 1960.

They gave themselves a fantastic chance following the 2-1 win over Manchester United.

After a goalless first half, Wolves took a 70th-minute lead through Raul Jimenez before striking partner Diogo Jota added a second goal six minutes later.

Wolves preserved their 2-0 lead until added time when Marcus Rashford pulled one back for the Red Devils.

It proved to be mere consolation for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players.

Wolves will face Watford on April 7 at the Wembley Stadium with a place in the final up for grabs.

Watford were the first team to secure their spot in the last four of the FA Cup after their 2-1 home win over London rivals Crystal Palace.

Etienne Capoue and substitute Andre Gray were on target for the Hornets.
