TIF Thoughts on Saint-Maximin’s display…
Saint-Maximin caused Arsenal a lot of problems at St James’ Park on Monday night, with the Frenchman a constant thorn on Takehiro Tomiyasu’s side.
The winger was able to complete six of his attempted eight dribbles and came close to opening the scoring in the first half with a fine strike at Aaron Ramsdale’s near post.
However, there will be some frustrations over his lack of defensive work on the night with no tackles or interceptions recorded, however, it is apparent his style of play will strike fear into right-backs across the league.
