The Wolverhampton Wanderers academy graduate had a night to forget for Nuno Espirito Santo and co despite the Molineux side's win.

A number of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on their 1-0 Europa League win over Besiktas and while many of the players were praised for their efforts, one who came under some scrutiny was Morgan Gibbs-White.

Wolves defender Willy Boly was the hero for the Molineux side with a 93rd-minute goal, showing great composure as he was picked out inside the box by Ruben Neves, taking a touch before slotting a neat finish into the bottom corner to send the away contingent wild.

 

However, the visitors had struggled earlier in the game, not managing a shot on target until midway through the second half, and Gibbs-White was amongst several players who offered little, along with Pedro Neto - who was subbed at half time - and Raul Jimenez, whose busy calendar year seems to be catching up with him.

Gibbs-White began on the wrong foot as he spurned an opportunity to release Jimenez early and from then on he continued to struggle with sloppy passes and rushed play, and in the end Nuno took him off for Leander Dendoncker just after the hour mark.

Here is what some Wolves fans have been saying on social media about the £7.2million-rated (Transfermarkt) England Under-21s international's display:

Up next for Wolves is the trip to Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday 6 October.
