JOBE BELLINGHAM has been compared to his superstar brother Jude following his mature interview after Sunderland's 1-0 victory over Leeds.
The 18-year-old's late winner ended Leeds United's seven-game unbeaten run in the Championship.
It took until the 78th minute for the deadlock to be broken as Bellingham headed past goalkeeper Illan Meslier.
His fourth EFL goal came against the newly relegated Whites, on the same night Jude was helping Real Madrid to victory over Union Berlin in the Champions League.
The result means it's two wins from two for interim Sunderland boss Mike Dodds, following the sacking of Tony Mowbray.
Dodds told BBC radio: "Both brothers have a very similar mindset in terms of their relentless pursuit of where they want to get to.

"I think he can go to the very top. I’ve worked with a lot of young players and he would be up there with the very best I’ve worked with."
Fans also spotted that Jobe Bellingham's eloquent interview technique is remarkably similar to his elder brother's.
One supporter wrote: "If my eyes were closed, I would think this is Jude talking just with a higher pitched voice. Those genes are STRONG."
A second commented: "Their parents raised two of the most mature teenagers I have ever witnessed."

A third wrote: "Opposition fans love to use the “Living off his brother” shout but they couldn’t be any more wrong."
A fourth said: "Wow they both come across so well. A credit to their parents."
Jobe Bellingham told Sky Sports: "The game required for me to go deeper.
"If that's what's needed then you have to do it. I'll play anywhere the manager and coaches want me to play and work my hardest."
Both brothers worked with Dodds during his 13 year coaching spell with the Birmingham City academy.
The versatile midfielder moved to Wearside last summer following a £3million deal with Birmingham, just hours after his big brother's record £115m switch to Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund.
Sunderland are within the play-off places, two points behind West Brom.
Meanwhile, Leeds remain third in the league, behind Leicester who dropped to second following Ipswich's 2-1 victory at Watford.
