Watford 1 – Wolves 2
Saturday’s match between Watford and Wolves came weeks after the Hornets won a clash in the FA Cup semifinal.
On that occasion, Watford came from behind to book their spot in the showpiece against Man City.
Wolves made a statement at Vicarage Road beating Javi Gracia’s men 2-1.
Raul Jimenez, just like at Wembley, fired Wolves ahead with the opener in the 41st.
Andre Gray drew Watford level early in the second half, however Diogo Jota stole the headlines with a 77th minute winner for the visitors.
Raul Jimenez trolls Troy Deeney
Memorably, after Raul Jimenez scored for Wolves at Wembley, the Mexican striker pulled out a mask.
That prompted Troy Deeney to mock the Wolves striker after Watford’s comeback.
Deeney joked that Raul Jimenez should continue to wear his mask to hide his embarrassment.
"I'm glad he put that mask on. He can wear it out as well now he's a loser!"

That comment clearly stuck with the Wolves attacker, and after Saturday’s win in the Premier League Raul Jimenez got a chance to have a pop back at Deeney:
I was in the right place to score that goal. I had one chance but I have my revenge and I score.
Did I read his programme notes? Yes, I also read that they put that I’m 32-years-old – and I’m not! I like to read them before the matches and it’s OK.
I heard all the interviews that he did. I hear everything that he said and it’s fair, I have no problem with it. This is football, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose and you have to be happy with that.
When you score you can do whatever you want. I don’t know if I’m going to win or I’m going to lose, I just did it. It’s something from Mexico and I’m happy with it.
I brought it but I don’t know why the people on the bench didn’t give it to me. They didn’t remember!
I haven’t scored since the last time we played against Watford, that’s why I didn’t do it before.
