Blow for Newcastle: Alan Saint-Maximin suffers injury setback & could miss Fulham clash

Alan Saint-Maximin is now a doubt to face Fulham after suffering an injury setback.


Eddie Howe has revealed that Alan Saint-Maximin has suffered a setback in his return from injury.

The forward has been struggling with a hamstring injury and missed the last four league matches.

He was expected back after the international break but that now appears unlikely.

Saint-Maximin’s injury setback

Howe has admitted that the Frenchman is now a doubt for after the international break.

Having already been out injured for three weeks, he was expected back at the start of next month.

However, a setback in his rehab means that he is now a doubt to face Fulham and the Newcastle boss is now unsure when he is due back.

Howe said: “With Allan, it’s slightly different. He’s had a very minor setback with the physios, so whether or not he’ll be fit after the international break is slightly unclear.

“It’s certainly not long-term, but it’s not clear whether he’ll be fit for our next game yet.”
