Newcastle United have posted a big double injury boost on their official Twitter page with a photo of both Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson in training.
The former has missed the last three games in the Premier League for the St. James’ Park faithful because of a groin injury, while the latter has been ruled out for the last six with a hamstring problem, as the North East club have failed to win any of those matches in which they have been absent.
While it is not clear whether they will both be ready for Tottenham, that match is still nine days away, so they will surely be in with a chance.
Newcastle boosted by Saint-Maximin and Wilson return
The Tyneside club will almost certainly be boosted by the return of two of if not their two most important players to Steve Bruce’s squad, especially with that tough game at home to Spurs coming up.
Would Saint-Maximin leave if the Newcastle takeover is not completed?
Wilson tops the Magpies charts in terms of goals and assists in the top flight so far in the 2020/21 term (10 and five respectively), while Saint-Maximin leads the way with regards to successful dribbles (3.3) per match (Whoscored).
With the Toon at a serious risk of being relegated down to the EFL Championship, there is no doubt that both players will need to be firing on all cylinders if they have a chance of surviving, with some crucial fixtures coming up that may define the rest of their season at the bottom of the table.
