Newcastle fans blown away by Sean Longstaff after beating Burnley

Newcastle United recorded a 2-0 victory over Burnley on Tuesday night – and many of the club’s supporters on Twitter hailed midfielder Sean Longstaff for his performance.

The Magpies moved seven points clear of safety in the Premier League, as they continued their great form with a win at St James’ Park.

Fabian Schar opened the scoring for the hosts with a thunderous effort from 30 yards that flew in off the woodwork.

Longstaff then added a second goal before half-time when he converted an effort inside the penalty area to put his team in pole position.

The Englishman netted his first Premier League goal against Burnley to highlight his attacking qualities, but ultimately it was his usual composure in the middle of the park on the ball that stood out.

Longstaff is also excellent at breaking up play and he’s fully earning his right to be in the senior team ahead of midfielder such as Ki Sung-Yueng, Mo Diame and Jonjo Shelvey as it stands.

Here are some of the Newcastle fans praising Longstaff:
