Allan Saint-Maximin has now dropped a hint on whether he will play for Newcastle United at home to Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League today.
The Lowdown: A doubt
Saint-Maximin has been touted as a doubt for the game as he continues his recovery from injury.
Has Saint-Maximin been Newcastle's best player this campaign?
The Latest: Hint
Taking to Twitter, Saint-Maximin has now posted a video compilation of some of his best dribbling skills in the 1-0 win at home to Aston Villa in the top flight last month, the last time that he featured in the North East.
He captioned it with just one word – the hashtag ‘#NEWBRI‘ – referencing today’s match, along with the suggestive eyes emoji, hinting that he may be fit enough to play.
The Verdict: Huge boost
It would certainly be a huge boost if Saint-Maximin is able to play a part against the Seagulls, especially given the fact that he has not trained, which would have caused an initial worry.
He is so important to the team, given that he is their second-top scorer in the Premier League so far this season with five goals, while his three assists are more than any of his teammates have managed (WhoScored).
