Player to watch – Morgan Gibbs-White

Morgan Gibbs-White has proven once again that he is a Premier League player despite Nottingham Forest being involved in a relegation battle.

The former Wolves man has 10 assists to his name this season, as well as five goals, making him a key player in the team. Without his playmaking, Nottingham forest surely would have been relegated by now but instead they simply have to avoid a heavy defeat on Sunday to confirm their place in England's top flight.

Morgan Gibbs-White has been one of Forest's best players this season

In what should prove to be an end-to-end, exciting match at Turf Moor, we're backing Gibbs-White to impress and wouldn't be shocked to see the English midfielder add to his assists or goals tally.
