Newcastle: Fans slam Sean Longstaff after defeat to Burnley

Newcastle: Fans slam Sean Longstaff after defeat to Burnley - Newcastle United

Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff had a £50m valuation put on him by the club last summer (as per Daily Mail) but he came in for fierce criticism from a lot of Magpies supporters today.

The 22-year-old was in the line-up that lost 0-1 away to Burnley this afternoon, a result which ended a three-match unbeaten run in the Premier League.

None of Longstaff’s three shots at Turf Moor found the target, while he recorded a passing success rate of just 67.4%, the fourth lowest among Steve Bruce’s starting XI, as he misplaced 14 of his 43 passes. In addition, he failed to pick out a team-mate with any of the four crosses that he attempted. [via WhoScored]

Longstaff, who had a £50m price tag placed on him a few months ago in the face of interest from Manchester United (as per Daily Mail), bore the brunt of harsh words from these Newcastle fans on Twitter:
