Newcastle United fans have flocked to social media to praise their latest cult hero following a superb performance away to Sheffield United on Thursday night, a match where Allan Saint-Maximin finally opened his account for the Magpies.
Steve Bruce’s side were under the cosh for a lot of the encounter, with keeper Martin Dubravka constantly forced into producing sublime saves to keep Newcastle in the contest.
However, goals from Saint-Maximin and Jonjo Shelvey managed to seal all three points and ensure the Tynesiders enter a busy festive period in a brilliant position – having won four out of their last eight games in the Premier League.
As a result, supporters have flocked to Twitter and praised the youngster for his brilliant headed finish – here’s what they had to say:
stay forever pls 🖤
