Newcastle fans really cannot get enough of Allan Saint-Maximin. The young winger is truly one of the most exciting wingers in the Premier League, and whilst he’s yet to score or assist, he’s already won over the Magpies owing to his fast, direct play down the flank and touch of flair as he attacks.

So far this season, even without a goal or assist to his name, the stats speak for themselves with the 22-year-old. The former Nice wide-man has been averaging 1.1 key passes and 3.6 dribbles per game, as well as winning 1.3 fouls per match (WhoScored), getting the fans off their seats as often as he can.
It was claimed after last Saturday, though, by West Ham journalist Sam Inkersole, that Pablo Zabaleta has now played his last game for the Hammers after being ripped to pieces by Saint-Maximin (The Chronicle) and the Newcastle fans have absolutely loved seeing it.
Is Allan Saint-Maximin Newcastle's best player at the moment?
Absolutely, he can do everything
No way! He hasn't even scored yet

Be prepared for a few right backs being sacked this season, because Maximin will run most of them ragged.

Is that because he hasn’t been seen since, last spotted in @asaintmaximin pocket

The Geordies are loving life with Saint-Maximin out wide and will be desperate to see him amongst the goals sooner or later.
