Mullins optimistic of Watford success
Hayden Mullins says Watford are capable of causing a shock and beating Manchester City in the FA Cup final.
Watford were on the verge of being knocked out in the semi-final as they trailed 2-0 against Wolves with 11 minutes remaining, but a sublime chip from Gerard Deulofeu and a stoppage-time penalty from Troy Deeney levelled the scores.
The Hornets then booked their place in the final for the first time since 1984 when Deulofeu slotted the ball past John Ruddy for the second time during extra-time.
Pep Guardiola's side are all that stands between Watford and FA Cup glory and Mullins, who is the club's Under-23 coach, believes the Citizens are in for a tough time at Wembley.
"It's great reaching the final but you want to go there and win the game," he told the club's official website. "I really believe anything can happen, it's a one-off game. "We've got a chance to win the FA Cup - and you'd have taken that at the start of the season.
"We know Man City are a fantastic team but in a one-off game you never know. I think we've got a real chance."
