Allan Saint-Maximin has been a revelation over the past two matches against Premier League big boys Manchester United and Chelsea. His explosive runs have gotten fans out of their seats in recent weeks.
He is born to take on opposing players with his lightning-quick turn of pace. Dribbling skills like his have not been witnessed on Tyneside since the time of Hatem Ben Arfa.
He has added such a threat to Newcastle’s counter-attack and already has cemented his name as one of the first ones on the team sheet.
Though his time in the Premier League is still in its infancy, Allan’s escapades have not gone unnoticed outside of Newcastle.
TalkSPORT’s Adrian Clarke has done a statistical deep dive into Saint-Maximin’s contributions thus far. His article details the attacking prowess of the 22-year-old Frenchman.

He's way too good for us. Ashley will be buzzing, he'll make a healthy profit on him in the summer. #NUFC
