Newcastle fans react to Allan Saint-Maximin’s display vs West Ham

Newcastle United will be disappointed with their 4-2 defeat against West Ham United in the Premier League yesterday.

The Magpies started the game with an early goal from Callum Wilson, and despite conceding an equaliser they regained the lead through Jacob Murphy.

Newcastle were undoubtedly the better team in the first half and in control of the game.

However, their performance levels dipped considerably after the break and it would be fair to say that the Magpies threw the game away.

Steve Bruce’s side looked vulnerable at the back during the second half, and West Ham punished them multiple times on the counter-attack.

The only positive from Newcastle’s performance yesterday was Allan Saint-Maximin’s display.

The 24-year-old winger has been a key player for the club since his move to the Premier League.

The Frenchman was outstanding in the first half, playing a key role in the two goals Newcastle scored against the Hammers.

He was the only player on the pitch who tried to make things happen for Newcastle in the final third.

There is no doubt that Newcastle will need the 26-year-old in top form this season if they are to break into the top half.

Some Newcastle fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance – here is what they had to say.
