Morgan Gibbs-White impressed again on Tuesday, scoring and assisting in a 4-1 win over Middlesbrough for Sheffield United.

The Blades are in tremendous form right now, having lost just two of their 13 Championship games so far in 2022.

They are in a really good moment right now. They are definitely in contention to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking following their relegation last season.

At the heart of everything good about Sheffield United in recent months has been Wolves’ very own Gibbs-White.

The star has now scored nine goals and made seven assists for the Blades, and is thriving in the English second tier.

And the way he took his latest goal was absolutely superb.

The ace took up a great position at the near post in the penalty area, and latched onto a low cross from Ben Osborn.

The 22-year-old produced an outrageous spinning flick, using the pace on the ball to guide his effort into the far corner past the helpless Joe Lumley in the Boro goal.

It was a moment of sheer class from the England U21 international.

He was clearly delighted with the goal himself, as he uploaded the clip to his Instagram last night.

Many fans have commented to say what a brilliant piece of skill it was. And there was also a show of appreciation from Wolves first-teamer Daniel Podence, who commented a couple of top hat emojis.

Podence, of course, is one of the most skilful players at Wolves, if not the most skilful.

He certainly knows a show of genius when he sees one.

Morgan Gibbs-White oozing with confidence right now

It was a wonderful finish from Gibbs-White, and one that showed the player is full of confidence right now.

You don’t try those kind of things unless you are brimming with it.

It is fantastic to see Gibbs-White having such a good season with Sheffield United.

Hopefully he can sustain this level right the way through until the end of the season.

Ideally, he’ll return to Wolves in the summer ready to make a go of becoming a regular in the starting XI. As much as Blades fans would no doubt love to keep him.
