Newcastle fans respond to Allan Saint-Maximin injury update

Allan Saint-Maximin has been a revelation for Newcastle since entering the Premier League.

He may only have scored once in the top-flight, but his displays have been thoroughly exciting and entertaining. The 22-year-old is one of the top dribblers in the league, second only to Wilfried Zaha.

Against Manchester City, he achieved seven of them before going onto score his first Magpies strike against Sheffield United.

However, it now looks as though Steve Bruce’s men could be without the winger for a period of time after journalist Lee Ryder confirmed he left the ground on Sunday on crutches.

Newcastle went onto beat Southampton 2-1 but the joy of winning was quickly overshadowed by Saint-Maximin’s injury.

One of the Toon Army’s most consistent performers in 2019/20, fans were understandably gutted to see him out injured. While players like one-goal Joelinton have failed to perform, he’s been a constant threat.

One fan went as far as claiming it was the worst news possible after seeing the tweet from Ryder.

Other supporters still remained frustrated by the news but donned their tactical hats and started to think of ways Newcastle could address the problem if the Frenchman was out for a period of time.

Saint-Maximin has been playing on the left-wing for the majority of the campaign so the most natural replacement would surely be former Chelsea man Christian Atsu. Should he miss a more extended period of time, Matt Ritchie could replace him once he returns from his own injury.

Who the heck is that?! Can you name all 25 of these obscure Liverpool signings…

A further method would be to move Joelinton into a wide role.

Further reaction surrounded the fact that fans didn’t think the forward was fit enough anyway, recalling some of their thoughts after the win over Sheffield United last week.

One supporter was shocked that he even played while another was seemingly in disbelief that Bruce didn’t withdraw him at some point throughout the match.

Can Newcastle cope without ASM?

We'll be fine

We'll be fine

Can see us being in bother

The summer arrival ended up playing the full 90 minutes at St James’ Park at the weekend, registering a colossal ten dribbles.

Meanwhile, one smart call from Steve Bruce paid dividends during their most recent win…
