READ NEWCASTLE VERDICT 

Should Longstaff come in against Spurs?

Absolutely. The midfielder was superb last season, using his ability to break up the play to great effect. He is also an accomplished passer, allowing Newcastle to bypass opposition press – leading to better attacking play from the Toon. 

With Tottenham’s quality in midfield, Steve Bruce needs to pick his best midfield to be in with a chance of getting a result in North London – with these Newcastle fans clearly feeling as though Longstaff belongs in their strongest XI.

Should Longstaff start against Spurs?

Yes

No
