COMMENTARY

Many Newcastle United fans took to Twitter to reveal they loved Allan Saint-Maximin’s explanation about why he was in Manchester United’s net when Matty Longstaff scored the winning goal of Sunday’s game. The 19-year-old midfielder slotted the ball past David De Gea from outside the box to give the Magpies a vital 1-0 win over Man United on Sunday, but it was hard not to notice Saint-Maximin during the goal’s replay. The winger is seen continuing his run into the box before stumbling and ending up in the net. One fan asked Saint-Maximin what he was actually doing during this moment of the game, and the Newcastle winger replied via his verified Twitter that he was “looking for the best view” before the goal. This cheeky response for this bizarre moment was lapped up by many Newcastle supporters as one called the attacker’s reply brilliant, while several just posted laughing emojis to show how much they appreciated his explanation. While that moment was a bit weird, Saint-Maximin did impress against Man United as he completed four dribbles and two key passes in order to be a lively attacking outlet for Steve Bruce’s side.
