Newcastle United hit with Allan Saint-Maximin blow ahead of Manchester United trip

Newcastle United forward Allan Saint-Maximin has been ruled out the game against Manchester United due to an injury on Sunday.

And that’s a huge plus for Man United, who are keen on closing in on the Premier League leaders Arsenal and Manchester City.

The Red Devils have won their last three matches and their chances of making it four wins in a row have been boosted by reports coming out of the Magpies camp.

According to Daily Mail, Allan Saint-Maximin has been ruled out of the game with a muscle injury and will now focus on recovering in time to help Newcastle in their future games.

The Magpies are also set to be without two more key players in Isak and Jonjo Shelvey.

Allan Saint-Maximin has been a vital member in Eddie Howe’s squad and his absence is expected to be a massive blow in the teeth for Newcastle but a blessing in disguise for Manchester United.

United are also without a key players due to injury issues and suspension.

Harry Maguire, Donny van de Beek and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are all ruled out of the game due to injury issues. Scott McTominay, who scored United’s match-winning goal against Omonia, will miss the clash due to a suspension.

Anthony Martial is a doubt for the game with a lower back injury but he has 50% chances of featuring. The France star came off injured in the first half against Everton last weekend.
