San Maximin was still absent for several weeks

Returning to the competition at the end of January, Alan Saint-Maximin was injured again during the Wolverhampton match (1-1) last Saturday. He shouldn’t be playing again until April.

History seems to repeat itself for Alain Saint-Maximin. Already out of the field from November 2020 to January 2021, the 23-year-old French striker has a thigh strain that will keep him out of competition until April at the earliest. He will miss the matches against West Brom (March 7) and Brighton (March 20), two direct competitors in the maintenance race. Newcastle are 17th in the Premier League, three points behind Fulham, 18th and the first relegation.

Since arriving in the UK in August 2019, Alan Saint-Maximin has accumulated 162 days of unavailability, the equivalent of thirty missed matches. This season, he suffered his third injury, with a 75-day absence. As a result, he played only 17 matches in all competitions, with two goals and two assists. Still far from his record year, in a Nice shirt at the time: five goals and nine assists in the 2017-2018 edition, the season that revealed it.
