Manchester United's Under-18s will host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Youth Cup semi-final.

Travis Binnion's side came from behind at Old Trafford last Thursday to defeat Leicester City 2-1 thanks to a pair of goals from Spanish winger Alejandro Garnacho.

The Foxes had taken a 29th-minute lead through Chris Popov before Garnacho levelled with a free-kick curler and then found the winner with only a minute to go.

That sets up an exciting semi-final against Wolves, who played their quarter-final on Saturday morning at Molineux. Brighton & Hove Albion were the opponents, and the Midlands club defeated the south-coast side 3-1 thanks to goals from Oliver Tipton, Nathan Fraser, and Harvey Griffiths.

Wolves entered the competition at the third-round stage and triumphed 4-1 over Salford City, setting up an away tie at Selhurst Park where they beat Crystal Palace 6-5 on penalties having only equalised through Nathan Fraser in the 93rd minute. Tyler Roberts's double, his second of this season's competition, helped Steve Davis's team to a 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round.

United and Wolves will face off at Old Trafford before the end of March. Supporters are encouraged to attend and further information on when the tie will be played and how tickets will be available will be communicated as soon as possible.
