EXCLUSIVE: Allan Saint-Maximin is OUT of Newcastle to Liverpool trip and could miss Saturday’s Crystal Palace clash due to a hamstring injury sustained in draw with Wolves
- Allan Saint-Maximin will miss Newcastle’s match against Liverpool at Anfield
- Magpies star sustained a hamstring injury in Sunday’s 1-1 draw against Wolves
- Frenchman possibly out for ten days and doubtful for Saturday’s game
- Alexander Isak has been cleared to make his debut for Newcastle on Wednesday
Allan Saint-Maximin will miss Newcastle’s trip to Liverpool and could be out for at least 10 more days with a hamstring injury.
Sportsmail understands that the winger is also extremely doubtful for Saturday’s visit to Crystal Palace. The match at West Ham a week on Sunday is a more likely return date.
Saint-Maximin picked up the problem during the closing stages of Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Wolves, a point saved by his stunning strike in the 90th minute.
Allan Saint-Maximin will miss Newcastle’s trip to Liverpool thanks to a hamstring injury
Head coach Eddie Howe said on Tuesday the 25-year-old was a ‘concern’ for the Anfield clash, but added that his side’s injury problems should only be ‘short-lived’. Callum Wilson and Bruno Guimaraes also have hamstring problems.
Better news for Howe is that Alexander Isak, a record £60million, has been allowed to play at Liverpool after being given a work permit from the Home Office.
Newcastle were prepared to wait up to 75 minutes before kick-off for the paperwork to arrive, but they were given permission on Wednesday afternoon.
And Howe could very well be tempted to start with the 22-year-old attacker, given the loss of those key figures in attack areas.
