EPL: He was superb – Newcastle legend, Alan Shearer reveals player that caused Man City problems

Newcastle legend, Alan Shearer has identified winger, Allan Saint-Maximin as the player that caused Manchester City problems after their 3-3 draw at St James’ Park on Sunday.

Shearer said Saint-Maximin was superb against Man City on Sunday, adding that he was very difficult to stop during the encounter.

Saint-Maximin put in a brilliant display as Newcastle drew with Pep Guardiola’s side at home.

The 25-year-old French star set up goals for Miguel Almiron and Callum Wilson and was fouled for a free-kick which Kieran Trippier curled into the top corner.

Reacting after the game, Shearer told BBC Sport, “Allan Saint-Maximin ran Kyle Walker ragged. The England full-back had his socks on inside out at full-time. I can’t remember a player running past him as many times as that in a game. There is no doubt Saint-Maximin has the ability. His final ball was superb against City.

“The Frenchman has provided four assists for Callum Wilson in the league now – the most he has given for any Newcastle player – which just shows the understanding that the pair have. If they can stay fit, then they will create chances, particularly if Saint-Maximin plays like that. When he is on song, he is very difficult to stop.”
