Nottingham Forest star Morgan Gibbs-White is currently playing amazingly well and in one respect he’s out-performing Jack Grealish.

The Reds player has now scored four goals and claimed six assists in the Garibaldi having signed from Wolves in the summer.

Gibbs-White is starting to flourish in a Forest team that in recent weeks has tried to find a more attacking approach to their player.

The Reds moved out of the relegation zone with a 4-3 win over Southampton on Monday and survival is now in their own hands.

Gibbs-White made the scoreline 3-1 earlier this week with a well-taken penalty that gave Alex McCarthy no chance at all.

After the game on Monday, some statistics emerged that showcase exactly how much brilliance Gibbs-White is showing this season.

Despite Forest struggling for goals at various points this season, it would seem as though they’ve had no problems creating chances.

Gibbs-White has created 63 chances this season and that puts him higher on the list than Jack Grealish who has created just 50.

The City star isn’t the only star player looking up at Gibbs-White, with Gabriel Martinelli, Mo Salah and Heung-min Son also below him.

This is quite a remarkable statistic that has come to light on the back of Monday’s game when the Forest man was simply brilliant.

The Reds claimed a huge three points against Southampton and although Gibbs-White did make some mistakes, offensively he was genuinely class.

Forest are extremely lucky to have Gibbs-White. He’s been a quality addition and it seems as though his career is on a huge upward trajectory.

Clearly, the player has some way to go to emulate Grealish. The pair do have similar qualities though and he will hope to be as good as the City star one day.

The big challenge that faces Forest is keeping hold of Gibbs-White.

They did tie him to a decent contract, however, so for now they should be safe in the knowledge that their star man is going absolutely nowhere.
