Following Newcastle United’s brilliant 1-0 win over Manchester United at the weekend, fans have taken to social media in absolute awe over Allan Saint-Maximin who put on a potential Man of the Match display for the home crowd.
Will Miguel Almiron come good?
The Frenchman was instrumental in securing the victory, proving a real handful for United’s back line in a bright display.
On the day, Saint-Maximin completed four dribbles (via WhoScored), more than anyone else on the pitch, showing the problems he caused Manchester United’s defence.
The 22-year-old bagged six goals and five assists in Ligue 1 for Nice last season, and if he can improve those numbers to go with his immense dribbling ability, he could well be a dangerous weapon for Steve Bruce this campaign.
It was a performance worthy of constant applause, and nobody has hailed his match-winning heroics more than the fans themselves.
You can have a look at what they have had to say below:
Knowing #NUFC, If he keeps playing like that, he’ll be sold in January 😫

Keep him fit and he will be a massive asset for us. Just for causing mayhem for defenders. Get a bit more clinical when it matters and he’ll be amazing

There’s something about #nufc and French wingers that just works. Ginola, Robert, Ben Arfa and this lad looks like a handful too 🙌🏼👏🏻

He needs to work on his end product but he will certainly terrify defences this season if he keeps playing like that.
