'Give ASM the keys to the city' – Newcastle United fans react to a Saint-Maximin-inspired Burnley win
Allan Saint-Maximin came off the bench to inspire Newcastle United to a potential Premier League status surviving win at Burnley – and fans are understandably over the moon with the French forward’s contribution.
On at 1-0 down, an assist for Jacob Murphy’s leveller and a wonder goal of his own ensured three points took United six clear of third bottom Fulham in the battle to beat the drop.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result...
@LeonMiIner – “Give ASM keys to the city.”
@bigpapablu – “Gonna spend the next hour or so gazing at the league table like it's a good thing. Who's with me?”
@NUFC360 – “Dubravka was great. The defence did well in the second half. Murphy didn’t let his head drop, scored a worldie. S Longstaff was everywhere. @asaintmaximin - what else can you say? He’s a star.”
@AdamBeckett09 – “It’s so great to finally see #NUFC take the opportunity presented to them. I fully expected (and for 45 mins, was justified) us to totally blow the chance to push ourselves toward staying up. Happy days.”
@davez2010 – “Safety is in our hands now, confidence should be high this week and we play better at HOME. It’s all to play for and every game should be considered a winnable game, let’s get more points on the board ASAP!”
@Magpie24_7 – “What a week for Allan Saint-Maximin... Donated packages to NHS workers in the region, Assisted and scored in 5 minutes to turn the game around, 3 points, taking us 6 points from the drop. Baller!”
