Longstaff featured for Newcastle in their Premier League game against Wolves away from home at the Molineux Stadium on Monday evening.
The 21-year-old midfielder started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, as it ended in a 1-1 draw.
Tottenham Hotspur legend Gary Lineker was following the match, and he was impressed with the performance of Longstaff - and so was Newcastle legend Shearer.
Agreed. He’s been very very good. https://t.co/5wIFbRIU5S— Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) February 11, 2019
Longstaff is a very good and promising young midfielder who has been playing well for Newcastle this season.
The Englishman seems to have established himself in Rafael Benitez’s first team, and was a force to be reckoned with in the middle of the park against Wolves on Monday evening.
According to WhoScored, the 21-year-old midfielder took one shot, had a pass accuracy of 80.8%, took 71 touches, and made six tackles, one interception and one clearance.
