talkSPORT pundit  Durham has heaped praise on  winger Allan Saint-Maximin for his performance against Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Frenchman produced his second consecutive electric display as battled to a deserved 2-1 victory over , and Durham was very impressed by him.

“He’s electric,” he said on talkSPORT [11/11; 16:52]. “He’s so dynamic, he makes things happen. He’s a game-changer for Newcastle. He can keep them up, and he can contribute massively to the fans’ entertainment.

“I think he’s terrific. Back-to-back wins now and I wonder if the fans [are] starting to warm to a little bit?”


For once it’s difficult to argue with what Durham has said. The shock jockey typically comes out with utter nonsense – he claimed earlier on Monday that Everton’s has the potential to be better than legend Steven Gerrard – but he’s actually spot on with this one. Saint-Maximin was sensational on Saturday, producing a thrilling performance as Steve Bruce’s side battled back to defeat ’s men. The statistics demonstrate just how impactful the former star was at St James’ Park. As per, the 22-year-old had two shots, produced three key passes, four successful dribbles and achieved a WhoScored rating of 7.46, the third best tally of any Newcastle player. Saint-Maximin struggled to find form and fitness in the early part of the , but is now looking like the electric talent the Magpies thought they were buying last summer. Let’s hope he can stay fit and keep this fine run of form going.
