“Nuno had a dream” goes the song, and it certainly lives on.

Second half goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota secured a 2-0 wwin and condemned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to back-to-back defeats for the first time as United boss.

One of the great Premier League campaigns by a newly promoted team will have at least one FA Cup trip to Wembley to crown it, after Nuno Espirito Santo’s side knocked out Manchester United to reach their first semi-final of the 21st century.

There was still time for VAR to show it’s worth, on a day when it’s absence had been severely felt elsewhere, overturning a late Victor Lindelof red card, but neither that, nor Rashford's last gasp goal were of much consolation to the away side, who have real questions to answer for the first time under Solskjaer.

Romelu Lukaku’s injury, coupled with the returns of Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard, meant United reverted to the front six that had started the Solskjaer revolution, with Paul Pogba captaining the side.

Nuno Espirito Santo meanwhile, decided against recalling Ryan Bennett, in the midst of a two-game suspension in the Premier League, and gave a planned start to cup ‘keeper John Ruddy in place of Rui Patricio.

Both sides had penalty appeals waved away, Wolves for some heavy handed man marking from Chris Smalling at a corner, and United for a possible handball, not dissimilar to the one they’d been given in the win over PSG in Paris.
