Wolverhampton Wanderers reached the FA Cup semi-final with a victory over Manchester United at a thunderous Molineux Stadium, thanks to a tremendous second-half performance from Nuno Espírito Santo’s men.

The second 45 was a huge contrast to the first, in both tempo and United’s performance. The Red Devils seemingly fell apart at the blow of the referee’s whistle after the break, and Wolves quickly took advantage of this.

After a magnificent, typical number 9 performance from the Wolves centre forward, Raul Jimenez topped off his wonderful performance, by getting the games first goal, with a fantastically taken finish inside the area.

United failed to reply to Wolves’ lead and were punished from their lack of tenacity, as Diogo Jota quickly added to the home sides goal tally with a passionately taken finish, as he rifled the ball past a beaten United defence and keeper.

There was a late consolation goal from Marcus Rashford, but his tidy finish was met with an ironic roar from the United’s fans, with the 94th-minute strike proving too little too late.

This defeat was Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s third defeat as United manager, and the first time he has faced consecutive defeats at the helm.
