Crystal Palace will meet Manchester United in the FA Cup final on 21 May after a hard-fought win over Watford in Sunday's semi-final.

Yannick Bolasie headed Palace ahead at Wembley when Damien Delaney flicked on Yohan Cabaye's early corner.

Watford, who lost midfielder Etienne Capoue to injury early in the semi-final, levelled when Troy Deeney nodded home Jose Manuel Jurado's corner.

Palace sealed a first FA Cup final appearance for 26 years when Connor Wickham met Pape Souare's cross.

Next month's final is a repeat of the 1990 showcase when Palace and United were involved in a thrilling 3-3 draw before the Red Devils ran out 1-0 winners in the replay.

United secured their place with a 2-1 win over Everton on saturday after the Toffees missed a second-half penalty.
