The midfielder has been sidelined since September 2019 because of a string of injury problems, and though he’s about to enter the final year of his contract with the club, it’s clear how highly his manager rates him.

Forshaw will have to earn any new contract of course, and whilst doing so won’t be a formality, if Bielsa rates him so highly, particularly after two years without a competitive fixture, there seems to be every chance that the player will be given an opportunity to impress.
