Former Crystal Palace striker and current Pundit for Sky Sports, Clinton Morrison spoke about Newcastle’s electric winger Allan Saint-Maximin after his performance at West Ham on Saturday.
Allan was just too much for West Ham’s 34-year-old right-back Pablo Zabaleta. We have no idea why Manuel Pellegrini waited so long to bring on the pacier Ryan Fredericks for the struggling Argentine.
This is what Morrison had to say about Saint-Maximin’s performance:
“Saint-Maximin, he was unplayable. I don’t know how you defend against players like that.
He doesn’t look like he knows what he’s going to do so I don’t know how defenders feel when he’s getting at them.
Every time they broke they looked like they were going to score.”
The 22-year-old was a dynamic force for Newcastle yesterday. However, he still was unable to get a goal despite two golden opportunities.
He’s getting closer and closer to opening his account at Newcastle and we can’t wait to see his reaction when he does.
Here are some of the stats showing the 22-year-old’s dominance in yesterday’s win.

Allan also gave his shirt to some youngsters who made the trip down to London Stadium.

Saint-Maximin is already a fan favorite and we can see why. He’s cemented himself into the starting eleven and we just can’t wait to see him play again on Saturday.
