Newcastle have badly missed Saint-Maximin and have only won two games without him.
Can Saint-Maximin's return help Newcastle beat Chelsea?
Yes, he has that quality they have missed
No, Chelsea will have too much
However, the French winger has trained for two weeks and could be ready for his return, which has excited these Toon fans.

What do we think?
It remains to be seen if Steve Bruce puts Saint-Maximin back in from the start or he brings him on as a substitute, but either way, it is a big boost to have Saint-Maximin back.
He has only scored one goal and provided one assist, but his pace and ability on the ball get Newcastle up the pitch, and to have that unpredictability back in the Toon’s side should make them a more dangerous prospect to face for the rest of the season.
