Wolves striker Patrick Cutrone made his Premier League debut for the club in yesterday’s 0-0 draw at Leicester, as noted by the club’s official Twitter channel, but had to be content with just 14 minutes of action after coming off the bench.
A first taste of @premierleague football for our new signing.

It was the 21-year-old striker’s second appearance for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side after featuring in last Thursday’s 4-0 Europa League qualifying win over Pyunik Yerevan, in which he also started on the bench before playing the final 27 minutes.
Cutrone joined Wolves from AC Milan in late July for a fee of £16million, as reported by BBC, but has played just 41 minutes of football in the two matches in which he has been involved so far.
The Italy striker was not especially prolific last season at the San Siro, scoring just three goals in Serie A in 2018/19, but 22 of his 34 league appearances came as a substitute, a trend that has continued into the introductory days of his time at Molineux.
These Wolves fans took to Twitter to give their verdicts on the player, with some liking what they have seen so far and some clamouring for his inclusion in the starting XI. Here’s some of the reaction:
Hopefully Nuno doesn’t bring him on for 10 mins every other game like he does with Traore

He’s the player to watch this season. Think he’s gonna ruffle some feathers and score some blinder. Really rating him so far altho he hasn’t played for long!!!

He did well. Needs to improve his hold-up play, but he was full of energy. A promising start
