Newcastle: Fans react to Saint-Maximin statistics


A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a tweet from WhoScored that has revealed the impact of Allan Saint-Maximin on their team.

The tweet states that the Frenchman has had a greater positive influence on the Toon than any other player in the Premier League.

Are you surprised by this statistic?

Yes, they should not have to rely on one player so much

Newcastle’s points-per-game ratio jumps up from 0.54 to two when Saint-Maximin starts.

In the 13 matches that the 22-year-old has not started, the Toon have won one game, drew four and lost eight.

This statistic has got many fans talking.

What do we think?

Saint-Maximin, who is valued at £22.5m by Transfermarkt, has only scored two goals and provided one assist in his 16 matches for Newcastle.

However, it is clear that without him in the side, the Magpies struggle to win games or even pick up the odd point.

The reason for this could lie in the Frenchman driving Newcastle up the pitch and allowing them to have territory further forward.

If he could add more end-product to his game, then he could become an even more important player for Steve Bruce’s men.
