They went 1-0 down early on so it was left to Amad Diallo and Mason Greenwood to combine for the leveller, and it’s produced this incredible stat:

When you consider how long that stat has stood for then it shows just how rare this is, but it shows that both should be set for a huge future in the game.

Unfortunately Adam Johnson and David Wheater didn’t quite live up to their early potential for very different reasons, but these two look destined for greater things.
