Newcastle United fans are questioning what has happened to Sean Longstaff, after the midfielder put in another off-colour display against Rochdale last night.

Newcastle beat the League One side comfortably, as they progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup.


However, the older Longstaff brother failed to impress the St. James’ Park crowd.

While Matty Longstaff got on the scoresheet, Sean had less of an impact.

And Newcastle fans feel that the 22-year-old’s form has dipped badly this season.

Longstaff earned a great deal of credit last term, when he initially broke into Newcastle’s team.

However, he has struggled to hold down a place in Steve Bruce’s side this term.

Newcastle are next in action against Chelsea at the weekend, when it will be interesting to see whether Longstaff is given a starting role again.
