The overwhelming response was that Matty and Sean should be starting together on Saturday.
I have to say I don’t see how it is even a discussion.
Also, the two Geordie midfielders together was a real boost for a lot of Newcastle fans, and for that reason, I think Matty should continue alongside his brother for at least the next two games.
Certainly, these Newcastle fans think Matty and Sean should continue.

Away to Chelsea at the weekend. I'm not confident of a result, but hope we can make a good show of ourselves at the very least. Would you persist with the Longstaff's in the middle? #NUFC

Hayden suspended, Ki and Shelvey haven’t shown they are good enough in a long time now. I know it was only one game but if something’s working surely you have to stick with it.

Anyone dropping the kid after that showing needs a slap. Other than the fact he was unbelievable – not just adequate – who would you replace him with? Imagine Geordie brothers starting game after game in the middle of the park?!

Have to play Longstaffs played well last match and is probably one of few positives around the club at the moment

I don’t see any other option, they have to play.

Got to have them starting. I’d go with the same team. Yedlin especially should also start.

Of course, keep playing them together.

You can’t change that side after winning really. Especially what went the week before
