It was a tale of two halves in the disappointing draw against Wolves at St James Park. While we felt Newcastle edged the first half, they were thoroughly outplayed by Wolves in the second.
There were some good performances, especially in defense where Jamaal Lascelles got back on the scoresheet for the first time in two seasons. Also, Federico Fernandez came in for his first Premier League start of the campaign and put in a professional display.
However, Newcastle also got some decent performances from the two wingers Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron. Both had some threatening runs with Allan Saint-Maximin proving to be one of our only outlets in the second half.
Miguel Almiron also put in some stellar work defensively though he failed to threaten Wolves with any of his chances.
But it’s the attacking Frenchman that has been quite easily selected as the best player in Sunday’s game. Saint-Maximin has collected 345 of the 996 total votes for 35%.
That is more than double of Fede Fernandez who gets 17%. The returning defender was closely trailed by Almiron who had 16% of the total vote. Captain Jamaal Lascelles comes in fourth with 15%.
Allan Saint-Maximin is fast becoming a fan favorite at Newcastle. His pace and dribbling skills are a sight to see. He came in second in the poll to Martin Dubravka last week against Chelsea. This time he claims the top spot.
