Some Newcastle United fans have been slamming the display of Sean Longstaff in their 1-1 draw at home to Leeds United on Friday night.
Raphinha gave the away side the lead with a cross which found its way into the far corner of the Magpies’ net, before Allan Saint-Maximin equalised at St. James’ Park after a mazy run with the ball.
Should Newcastle sell Longstaff?
While other players stood out for the home side, some members of the Toon Army felt as if Longstaff did not have his best of games, as he lost out on seven of his duels and recorded no successful dribbles (Sofascore).
He also failed to make a single interception or cross, and lost possession on 12 different occasions in the match, giving him a measly 6.7 overall rating on Sofascore, the joint-second lowest out of any of his teammates to have started the clash.
Newcastle fans on Longstaff display
These Newcastle fans on Twitter slammed the 23-year-old’s performance on Twitter, with one supporter even going as far as to claim that Longstaff was ‘hopeless’ last night:
“Remember when people were saying we should be rejecting offers from Man United for Sean Longstaff??? Wowwwwww….. he’s the worst player I’ve seen in a Newcastle kit”
“Longstaff is massively overrated”
“Sean Longstaff is giving me a migraine. HOPELESS.”
“I just can’t stand Longstaff”
“Longstaff has been awful in every game I have watched off him, no legs, stamina, ability not sure why he’s in the team so often”
“Longstaff is awful. Lucky we have *checks bench* Hendrick, to come on!”
