Wolverhampton Wanderers enjoyed a 2-0 win over West Ham United on Wednesday night and Patrick Cutrone finally got himself on the scoresheet after coming off the bench.
The 21-year-old has been short of form and playing time under Nuno Espirito Santo this season, but he took his chance when called upon and had an emotional reaction after finding the back of the net.
Cutrone was introduced in the 84th minute of the game against West Ham. His goal came two minutes later from a deflected pass into the box that he finished past David Martin. He cried after scoring and supporters were touched by the moment.
So happy cutrone scored tonight ment the world to him wolves ay we ❤ https://t.co/SQggh9yHnS

Glad to see Cutrone finally get on the score sheet. If he can start to find form that’ll help boost our offense immensely. https://t.co/u57dPhB8Cw

Against the Hammers, Cutrone played for six minutes, made six touches, had one shot that led to a goal, made three passes, made one tackle and made one interception. He’d only played one minute of Premier League football since mid-October before coming off the bench on Wednesday, but Nuno may give Cutrone more opportunities after his goal.
Do you think we should give Cutrone more time?
Yes, he is young and learning
No, he hasn't impressed
He’s netted three goals in 21 appearances this season, amassing only 765 minutes of football, but his hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed with supporters. Fans were delighted to see him find the back of the net and hope he can go on from strength to strength.
