Wolves have been drawn against Watford in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley next month.

Wolves are heading to Wembley

Wolves lost to Watford earlier this season, with the Hornets winning 2-0 at Molineux back in October.

However, after knocking out Manchester United on Saturday, Nuno Espirito Santo's side will be confident of reaching a first FA Cup final since 1960.

The two sides are currently seventh and eighth in the Premier League. The game – Wolves' first FA Cup semi-final since 1998 – is likely to be played on Sunday, April 7.

Manchester City face Brighton in the other semi-final and Pep Guardiola's team play Spurs in the Champions League on Tuesday, April 9, so their semi is to be played on Saturday.

The date, ticket allocation and kick-off time will be confirmed soon.
