Newcastle United supporters hand perfect verdict to Sean Longstaff after Southampton brace

Chronicle Live readers have given Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff a near-perfect review after his two goals sent them through to their first domestic cup final since 1999.

The local Geordie boy netted twice in 16 first-half minutes to secure the Magpies' place in the Carabao Cup Final as they beat Southampton 3-1 over both legs of their semi-final.

Longstaff was handed the best average rating of any player for his performance, as he managed a 9.0 out of 10, a whole 1.1 higher than anyone else.

Goalkeeper Nick Pope was also hailed for his big moments, which included a fantastic save with his legs to deny Adam Armstrong a late equaliser.

Fans were so overcome with the joyous Wembley feeling that striker Callum Wilson, who received the lowest rating of any Magpies player, was given a 5.7 out of 10, just below what is considered an 'average game' of a 6.0.

Other high placers were Joelinton and Kieran Trippier who both proved to be difference-makers in the lead up to both Newcastle goals as Eddie Howe's side confirmed their place in the final.
