Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to react after Sean Longstaff put in a man-of-the-match performance against Wolves at Molineux on Monday night.
The Magpies academy graduate excelled in the middle of the park against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men, on a night where Rafa Benitez was just seconds away from executing the perfect game plan over Wolves to take all three points back to Tyneside – Longstaff in particular was key to making this plan work effectively.
The 21-year-old made a whopping six tackles, one interception, one block and one clearance, performing heroically as a shield in front of the Newcastle defence alongside Isaac Hayden.
Be sure to check out the incredible story of the man who rose from a Tanzanian refugee camp to become one of Australia’s biggest football stars in the video below…
Longstaff has shone since breaking into the Tynesiders’ starting XI, and has made the St James’ Park faithful extremely proud with his battling displays.
Against last season’s Championship winners, the Magpies’ supporters were overjoyed with their young star’s performance yet again if their reactions on Twitter are anything to go by…

Longstaff impressive again, looked like a seasoned pro rather than someone that has played less than a handful of games. Rondon makes a massive difference in how we play. As we hav such a tactically astute manager we should stay up #NUFC
