The date is set!

Watford and Manchester City have been confirmed as the finalists for this year's FA Cup. The pair will go head-to-head for the trophy at Wembley on May 18. Watford booked their ticket to their first cup final in 35 years following a dramatic 3-2 win over Wolves after extra-time.

Thanks to Gerard Deulofeu, the Hornets instaged a turnaround after conceding two goals earlier. Matt Doherty and Raul Jimenez almost put Nuno Espirito Santo's side through but the former Barcelona star kept Watford's dream alive by reducing the goal deficit to one after coming on from the bench. A 94th-minute spot-kick by Troy Deeney forced the game into extra-time before Deulofeu stunned Wolves in the 104th minute to secure qualification for his side.

Meanwhile, Manchester City booked their spot at Wembley following a 1-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday. The Citizens were forced to battle the resillence of the Seagulls and Gabriel Jesus' 4th-minute strike proved to be adequate for Pep Guardiola's side.

The Etihad outfits who have been tipped for a historic quadruple this season are odds on to clinch the FA Cup title having gotten the better of Watford in both Premier League games this season. The men in blue have not lost against the Vicarage Road outfit in all competitions since 1989.
