Sean and Matty have made huge impacts on Newcastle’s first-team after breaking through, with the pair both impressing.
Sean has been part of Newcastle’s starting line-up for over a year now, with Rafael Benitez originally seeing the youngster’s talents.
Matty, on the other hand, only made his Premier League debut for Newcastle two weeks’ ago, and he scored the winner against Manchester United.
The 19-year-old looked at home in the Magpies’ midfield, and Sean admits that his younger sibling is a tireless worker.
“He worked so hard to get back, he probably does work harder than me. I look at him and if I could work as hard as he does, I don’t know where I could get to,” Sean said.
“His work rate, everything he does off the pitch is better than me. It felt like everything had been building to that moment he scored. It was unbelievable and even now I get a bit emotional talking about.”
It seems likely that the Longstaff brothers will start alongside each other again at the weekend, in Newcastle’s next match.
The Magpies are set to take on Chelsea, and they will be eager to cause another upset, as they look to climb further up the Premier League table.
