Some Wolverhampton Wanderers fans are discussing a potential turning point int he club’s season, after Willian Jose played a part in last night’s 2-1 win over Arsenal.

The Brazilian striker was handed his full home debut by Nuno Espirito Santo following his loan move from Real Sociedad.

The 29-year-old is tasked with being Raul Jimenez’s replacement at Molineux while the Mexican recuperates from his fractured skull, and the early signs are good.

Jose didn’t get on the scoresheet last night, but he undoubtedly impacted the game.

It was he that made the run and won the penalty for Wolves at 0-1, with David Luiz earning a red card in the process.

In general, Jose was impressive at Molineux and he clearly already has a good understanding with some of his new teammates.

The ace has a great first touch and is always looking to pop the ball off and then take up a position in the box.

On the evidence of last night, it is only a matter of time before he gets off the mark.

Wolves have shown that when they play with a back four, they create chances and Jose potentially stands to score quite a few between now and the end of the season.

On social media, fans have been giving their reactions to Jose’s first appearance at Molineux, and it’s safe to say a few people are very excited by what they’ve seen so far:
