But Downie expects him to be back in action in the coming days.

Sharing photographs of Saint-Maximin at a local to his personal Twitter account, he said: “In hamstring news, he’s set to return to training later this week”.

OPINION

Newcastle have got off to a pretty dire start this . Their 1-0 opening day defeat to Arsenal showed flashes of what Army are capable of, but against Norwich they were lacklustre, devoid of creation, and ultimately very, very poor. Saint-Maximin has yet to start a game for the Magpies, but there have already been hints pf what he can do, and that rampant creativity was certainly missing against . In his 23 Premier League minutes so far he has a pass completion rate of 100%, has completed two successful dribbles, and been dispossessed just one, as per Whoscored. More importantly, however, he looked lively, and for a side who were as dull and listless as United were on Saturday, that shouldn’t be underestimated. The sooner he is fit enough to be starting matches, the better.
