Nuno proud after Wolves progress

Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo was full of praise for his players after they defeated Manchester United 2-1 at Molineux to reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Second-half goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota were enough to down the Red Devils, whose lone reply came in stoppage time through Marcus Rashford.

And Nuno was delighted with the performance, as Wolves reached the last four of the FA Cup for the first time since 1998, having disposed of Liverpool, Shrewsbury Town and Bristol City earlier on in the competition.

The Portuguese told BBC Sport: "I'm very proud of the players. We had composure, shape, good running – very well done to the boys.

"We have some phenomenal players going forward. It is a deserved result, we were outstanding.

"From start to finish we nullified them – they are an unbelievable club with talented players. We said before in the changing rooms we have the chance to make history and we now have the chance to go through again.

"It is where we all want to be. In two years the club has gone a long way, we are all pulling in one direction – it is an amazing night for everyone."

Wolves are joined in the semi-finals of the FA Cup by Watford and Manchester City, with the winner of the clash between Millwall and Brighton completing the last-four line-up.

The Molineux men are 4/1 to win the FA Cup for the fifth time in their history, with the Citizens priced at 2/5 and Watford 9/1.
