Henri Lansbury has been Nottingham Forest’s best player so far this season

Henri Lansbury has been in brilliant form for Nottingham Forest so far this season.

Henri Lansbury is one of the best players in the Championship and he has been very good for Nottingham Forest this season.

In fact, the former Arsenal midfielder has been the best player for Forest so far this campaign.

The 25-year-old has created as many as 34 chances in nine Championship appearances for the Reds in the 2015-16 campaign.

Only Craig Conway of Blackburn Rovers has created more chances than Lansbury in the second tier of English football so far this term.

Lansbury is not the only Forest player who has been playing well this season, though.

Summer signings Ryan Mendes, Nelson Oliveira and Daniel Pinillos have done well, but it is the former Arsenal prospect who has been the best for Dougie Freedman’s outfit.

Forest are 14th in the Championship table at the moment with 12 points from 10 matches, six points behind sixth-place Burnley.

The Reds will take on Bristol City away from home at the Ashton Gate Stadium in the Championship on Friday evening.
