Newcastle United’s Allan Saint-Maximin was criticised on Saturday afternoon by Magpies journalist Dominic Scurr after a dive he carried out towards Brighton & Hove Albion.
Eddie Howe’s aspect drew 0-0 with the Seagulls yesterday and the purpose ended up being a great one contemplating the way in which Graham Potter’s aspect performed and the probabilities they created.
Newcastle’s Nick Pope had an unbelievable efficiency for the Toon, making 5 very important saves, and protecting his second clear sheet in as many matches for his new membership.
Nevertheless, a small speaking level of the match for Scurr was a dive from Saint-Maximin.
The 25-year-old fell to the ground on the sting of the Brighton field as Alexis Mac Allister made an try to win the ball again and was left with egg on his face as referee Graham Scott handed him a yellow card.
The Newcastle correspondent tweeted in-game: “A laughable dive from Saint-Maximin sees him decide up a yellow card. Brighton have edged the opening 23 minutes right here. Water break now going down.”
