Allan Saint-Maximin quite easily won our reader’s poll as Newcastle’s best player against Wolves.
BNS Comps has again tweeted out a video of Allan Saint-Maximin’s touches against Wolves. They did the same with the Chelseas match.

Late week, Adrian Clarke wrote a statistical analysis about Allan’s recent performances and how well they stack up against other players in the league.
Squawka Football has isolated the statistic of take-ons and compared it with Wolves’ Adama Traore who was outstanding on Sunday:
• 10 take-ons attempted
• 6 take-ons completed
• 8 take-ons attempted
• 4 take-ons completed

Of course in the end, it’s production that really matters and Allan needs to work on his final ball. However, he did put some dangerous crosses against Wolves and seems to be getting better with each Premier League game he plays in.
