Sean Longstaff won praise from Howe after scoring in Saturday’s 4-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage. Miguel Almiron netted twice against Marco Silva’s 10-man side, while Callum Wilson also found the net.
Longstaff, recalled to the starting XI, lined up in midfield alongside Bruno Guimaraes and Joe Willock.
“The midfield had a good look about it,” said United’s head coach. “I thought Joe performed really well, Bruno was pivotal to everything we did.
"I think Sean’s got a really nice way of linking play, being creative – and also being a goal threat. He’s done that most of career. He’s scored long-range goals. Today was more of a poacher’s goal for him, but he’s been excellent for me. He’s never let me down. He’s come into today, and put in a really good performance. He’s really knocking on the door to start, which is a great thing for the group.”
