Some Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have expressed their desire to see Owen Otasowie start against Manchester City tonight.

The young midfielder has not had any minutes since the club’s first game of 2021 against Brighton.

The USA international missed a golden chance right at the death against the Seagulls, and his lack of minutes since has been a little hard to fathom for some.

That he did not get any chances in the FA Cup was strange, especially given the fact he made the bench for each game.

Nuno has been very insistent on using Joao Moutinho over the past few months.

Despite his advancing years, the Portugal international had played the bulk of the games for Wolves this term and some have been perplexed by this given his form.

But he hasn’t exactly been given many chances since, and has made four appearances in total for the first-team, equating to just 114 minutes of time on the pitch.

Nuno recently stated that Otasowie ‘is an option for us’, so more minutes could await the 20-year-old.

Manchester City may be tonight’s opponents, but some Wolves fans still hope to see the New York City-born dynamo in from the start:
