Wolves avenge FA Cup heartbreak with 2-1 win at Watford


Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Diogo Jota scores their second goal

Watford (UK), April 27: Wolverhampton Wanderers got some revenge for a stinging FA Cup semi-final defeat by Watford as they beat them 2-1 in a lively Premier League clash on Saturday.
They also stayed in contention for a Europa League berth, seventh in the table on 54 points from 36 games, four ahead of closest challengers Everton and Watford.
Having thrown away a two-goal lead in their 3-2 Cup defeat by the Hornets at Wembley, Wolves enjoyed better fortunes this time after goals by Raul
Jimenez and Diogo Jota gave them the win at Vicarage Road.
Visiting coach Nuno Espirito Santo singled out the scorers.
“Jota and Jimenez have been working really hard,” the Portuguese told the BBC. “I truly believe the more time they spend together the more good things will happen.
“It feels good because the boys worked hard against a very tough and difficult opponent.
“Maybe I’m the only one in the country that knows that seventh position doesn’t guarantee anything. It’s not about finishing as high as possible, but it’s about finishing as well as possible.” (Agencies)
