Gibbs-White sets sights on Arsenal

8th November 2018, 14:09 by Jack Ogalbe

Wolves youngster Morgan Gibbs-White says he is excited about the prospect of taking on Arsenal on Sunday.

The midfielder earned plenty of plaudits for his cameo off the bench in last weekend's 3-2 defeat to Tottenham and will be hoping for a similar impact in Sunday's trip to the Emirates.

Club legend Steve Bull described the 18-year-old's performance in glowing terms, adding that he "proved he has the mentality to succeed in the Premier League" in the game against the Lilywhites.

Gibbs-White is now hoping for a first top flight start when his side head to north London to meet Arsenal on Sunday.

The Stafford-born starlet says he grew up admiring the Gunners and is excited by the prospect of taking on one of the Premier League's top sides.

He told the club's official website: "I loved watching Arsenal when I was a kid, and City are another team that are beautiful to watch, it's a dream to come up against these sorts of teams, which will only help us get better.

"Arsenal have been very good, so we know it's going to be a tough game going to the Emirates, but the boys know we've got to keep doing what we've been doing.

"We have to have that sort of mindset because you can go into a game scared about the opponent or you can be complacent, so we have to have the mentality that we're going to play this way. The manager wants us to play this way and if things aren't working we'll stick at it and finally get our reward."
