Watford were the first to move through to the semi-finals after a 2-1 win at home against Crystal Palace on Saturday lunchtime. The Hornets got over the finish line thanks to substitute Andre Gray scoring 10 minutes from time.

Watford will be taking on Wolves who produced yet another fantastic display against strong opposition. Wolves dispatched Manchester United 2-1 on home soil to continue their wonderful season. This will be their first semi-final in the FA Cup for 21 years.

Manchester City are the 1/3 outright favourites* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 17th, 2019 at 7:10 p.m.). They had their backs against the wall though in their quarter-final. They paid a visit to Championship side Swansea and had to mount a serious fightback after seeing themselves 2-0 down in the fixture.

But turn it around they did and that means that their quadruple hopes for the season are still in tack. City face Brighton in the final four. The Seagulls looked to be heading out as they were trailing 2-0 with three minutes left at Championship side Millwall. But after Jurgen Locadia snatched one back in the 88th minute, a howler from the Millwall keeper saw them gift an equalizer to Brighton.

With no further goals in extra time, the Seagulls won 5-4 on penalties. The Seagulls move through to just their second ever FA Cup final, their first was back in 1983 when they went on to finish runners up.
