Newcastle United drew 3-3 with Brentford on Saturday afternoon and Allan Saint-Maximin was one of many players who impressed. The 24-year-old scored the equalising goal so Newcastle could rescue a point at St James’ Park and was given a player rating of 8/10 by Chronicle Live.

Saint-Maximin had gone five Premier League games without a goal or assist, but he scored from close range after converting a cross in the second half and could have assisted Joelinton for a late winner had the 25-year-old not fluffed his chance.

Against Brentford, Saint-Maximin played for 90 minutes, had 51 touches won one aerial duel, completed 88.2% of his 17 passes, created two chances, had seven shots with two being on target, whipped in three crosses, had five successful dribbles and won one freekick.

The 24-year-old has made 13 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring three goals with three assists. Saint-Maximin had scored or assisted a goal in five of his first six games before enduring a drought in October, but he’s back in form in November.

Newcastle travel to face Arsenal at the Emirates on November 27.
