Allan Saint-Maximin again put in a magical shift for Newcastle on Saturday. He ran England international Kyle Walker ragged as the Manchester City defender just didn’t know what to do with the Frenchman.
The 22-year-old played his part in yesterday’s dramatic draw, which we have to keep reminding ourselves wasn’t a win. 😉
However, Allan also paid the price as he was battered and bruised all game long while often winning free-kicks in critical areas for the Magpies. He had to leave the game early with what looked to be a lower back injury after he was almost through on the Man City goal.
Local injury analyst Ben Dinnery tweeted the following information on both Allan and Andy Carroll after Saturday’s match.
Steve Bruce confirms Andy Carroll "didn't quite make" today's game after suffering a rib injury in training. Saint-Maximin also picked up a knock. “Allan is sore, but I’m sure he’ll be okay."

It looks like Saint-Maximin should be ok, but it is a short turn-around for the next match at Sheffield United on Thursday. The electric winger did take part in Newcastle’s Junior Magpies Christmas Party on Sunday, so all is hopefully fine for him to be ready to go in four days.
