WHO WAS MAN OF THE MATCH? Newcastle 2-2 Southampton

Who was Man Of The Match?

Newcastle had only lost one of their past 16 Premier League home games against Southampton, falling 2-1 in January 2015. Going into the game, The Magpies had won their last four home Premier League games against Southampton. The game saw the end of this home winning run as James Ward-Prowse’s 96th minute ensured his Southampton team earned a point at St James’ Park. Lascelles yet again has conceded a penalty, this time round the mistake was more crucial as it cost Newcastle two points. Would these dropped points come back to haunt The Magpies? Anyways, onto our Man Of The Match, Allan Saint-Maximin. Another aesthetically pleasing performance from Newcastle’s main man. Let’s check out his stats here:
