Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea legend Pat Nevin has warned the Blues of the Longstaff brothers.

Sean and Matthew Longstaff started in midfield as Newcastle beat Manchester United 1-0 before the international break with Matthew scoring the only goal of the game.

According to Nevin, the Longstaff brothers have a fighting spirit which fans want to see in their team.

Nevin told Chelsea’s official website: “I watched Newcastle a few weeks back against Manchester United and I saw an echo of that spirit, which is handy for them, as the week before when losing to Leicester the spirit was notable only for its absence.

“The young Longstaff brothers in midfield last week were the epitome of the pride in their play and in their shirts that the home fans wanted to see. Every football fan knows it when he or she sees it.

“All players try during games, but there is something over and above the norm that we as fans are looking for.”
