After brothers Shola and Sammy Ameobi achieved the rare feat of both scoring in Newcastle United's 2-0 Capital One Cup victory over Morecambe last night, GiveMeSport looks at other siblings who have enjoyed playing together in the Premier League.

Despite both being attacking players, you can't get much more of an example of chalk and cheese between Shola and Sammy.

Target man Shola is a bit of a cult hero at the Tyneside outfit while younger brother Sammy has shown promising signs of potential and talent with his quick feet and dazzling skills.

However, these two worked together to score the goals last night which saw Newcastle avoid a historic upset against League Two outfit Morecambe.

This left Toon fans singing: 'You do the Ameobi and you turn around,' and mum and dad as extremely proud parents.

It is worth noting that the brothers looked at in this feature aren't quite as inseparable as the De Boers, who followed each other at virtually every club they went to - including spells at Ajax (twice), Barcelona, Rangers and even Qatar clubs Al Rayyan and Al Shamal as their glittering careers wound down.
