Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Academy graduate Morgan Gibbs-White has long been incredibly highly rated by those at the club and those in the fanbase who have seen him in action previously.

The 18-year-old now has eight starting appearances to his name, with a further 26 from the substitutes bench, but Wednesday evening marked his maiden Premier League debut, and he helped himself to an assist on the night.

Fans and pundits have been rightly raving about him since the fulltime whistle went and he certainly came in for some love on social media.

The comments aren’t a surprise really (there were plenty more), and for many, neither was his performance but I can guarantee a few others may have sat up and taken notice of him after that, so it’s over to him to show further improvement now and work on cementing himself in head coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s first team plans in the months to come.

One thing that’s definitely worth mentioning in the aftermath of the game, is that MGW wrote himself into our history books with his appearance.
