Patrick Cutrone scored his first goal within the first two minutes of the match and while the first half wasn’t great, Cutrone grabbed a goal in the 2nd half to help see off SPAL. The 20 year-old Italy U21 player seems to be making the decision for Gattuso as to who will be the first choice striker at the club. Let’s hope that he continues rewarding the faith shown to him.
