  • Newcastle United beat Manchester United 2-0 at St. James Park on Sunday
  • The win moved the Magpies into third and dropped United out of the top four
  • A Red Devils fan got more than what he wanted after his taunting on Twitter

Newcastle United beat Manchester United in the Premier League 2-0 on Sunday at St James Park, thanks to goals from Joe Willock and Calum Wilson.

It was the third meeting between the two sides this season, with the first leg in the league ending in a draw while United was victorious in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley Stadium on February 26.

Erik ten Hag's men won the one that mattered the most, but could be in danger of missing out on Champions League football next season.

Saint-Maximin savages United fan

The Magpies' French forward, Allan Saint-Maximin was one of Eddie Howe's brightest men in the afternoon, assisting Willock for the opening goal before making way for Joelinton, according to Pulse Sports.

His pace and trickery in his 70 minutes on the pitch were too much for Portuguese right-back, Diogo Dalot to handle.

Saint-Maximin, who is active on social media, took to Twitter and uploaded a picture of himself in action afterwards.

However, one United fan got more than he could handle when he trolled the forward, as reported by Sportskeeda.

The Twitter user cheekily asked Saint-Maximin where his trophy was, prompting the 26-year-old to take some pleasure at the Red Devils' plight.

The Ugandan fan refused to be defeated and said he would frame the response from the Premier League star, before applauding him as a 'big game player'.

The troll then asked for a signed shirt, although Saint Maximin never responded to the request.

Saint-Maximin overlooked by France

Sports Brief also listed Saint-Maximin among the EPL stars yet to make their international debut despite being in top form for their clubs.

The ex-Monaco star represented his country at all youth levels but is yet to join Les Bleus, having last played with the U21 squad in 2019.

Arsenal and Brazil defender, Gabriel Magalhaes and Chelsea and France defender, Wesley Fofana are also yet to claim any national caps.
