Newcastle United secured their position in the top four last night with their win against Brighton.

Last night was one to remember for Newcastle United as they put four past Brighton to put themselves within touching distance of the Champions League.

However the match wasn’t without its hiccups. Untied’s bench was a bit patchy as the team had to go without Sean Longstaff and Jacob Murphy due to injury.

Murphy was dropped to the bench against Leeds last Saturday due to a sore groin and was completely absent from the squad against Brighton. But that didn’t mean he wasn’t front and centre supporting his team.

In a post-match clip of the players returning victorious to their changing room, Murphy was in prime position, joyfully greeting each player and staff member as they went past.

In his true joker fashion, he addressed Isak with the hilarious nickname ‘spaghetti boy’ and loudly cheered for everyone- the loudest cheer being for Anthony Gordon- or Starboy Malfoy if you prefer.

Miguel Almiron also got a special reception as the pair did a secret handshake before hugging.

Longstaff was also present and can be seen grinning in the team’s celebratory photo alongside captain Jamaal Lascelles who is out for the rest of the season due to injury.

It’s currently unknown when Murphy and Longstaff will be making their return to the sqaud, but fans are hopefull it will be before the end of the season.
