Newcastle United: Fans offer tactical ideas following Allan Saint-Maximin injury update

Following the news that Newcastle United favourite Allan Saint-Maximin will be out for the next month with a hamstring injury, some supporters have offered their tactical verdict for how Steve Bruce should proceed with his line-ups over December. 

Saint-Maximin, who has shone since his move to the Premier League in the summer, will be a huge miss for the Magpies considering the amount of flair and pace he has provided on the left-wing – prompting supporters to bring up new names or suggest a change in formation to suit the team.

Yes

Yes

No

No

Among those names that supporters think could do the job in place of Saint-Maximin, Christian Atsu and Yoshinori Muto have been mentioned as potential alternatives – with both of them having to endure a place on the fringes of this Newcastle side so far this campaign.

Some supporters are also keen on a new 3-5-2 formation, with Joelinton and Andy Carroll in the forward roles along with Matty Longstaff being brought back into midfield as an extra man.

Here’s how they came to numerous verdicts on Twitter.
