Newcastle fans don’t want Allan Saint-Maximin risked against Chelsea

Newcastle United attacker Allan Saint-Maximin could be back in contention to return against Chelsea on Saturday evening – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are worried about potential rushing him back.

The Magpies welcome Chelsea to St James’ Park at the weekend in the Premier League and need to try improve a run of one point from their last four league matches.

Manager Steve Bruce has confirmed that Saint-Maximin may be available for a return.

“Allan Saint-Maximin has trained for the past two weeks so we hope that he’s going to be ok for tomorrow,” he said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

The 22-year-old hasn’t played since 8 December due to a hamstring problem and he’s already had a spate of injuries during his first season at the club.

But the left-winger has looked impressive in the 12 appearances he has made this season, as he injects some serious pace and trickery to the frontline.

A selection of Newcastle supporters on social media insist that Bruce must avoid throwing Saint-Maximin straight back into the starting XI against Chelsea despite the temptation.

Saint-Maximin can be a crucial player in the second half of the season if he can stay fit and the best is definitely yet to come from him.

The French wide man can add the same kind of pace going forward as teammate Miguel Almiron, who is starting to discover some goalscoring confidence.

Here are some Newcastle fans commenting on Saint-Maximin:
