Saint-Maximin shortlisted for player of the month
Newcastle United forward Allan Saint-Maximin has been nominated for the Premier League’s EA Sports player of the month award for September.
The Frenchman has been in electrifying form for the Magpies this season, netting once and providing two assists this month to take his tally to two goals and three assists for the campaign so far.
That means the 24-year-old registered a goal involvement in each of the Magpies’ three September outings. Saint-Maximin provided the assist for Javier Manquillo’s strike against Manchester United at Old Trafford before netting the equaliser himself against Leeds at St. James’ Park, rounding off the month by laying on Sean Longstaff’s effort at Watford.
And he has been rewarded for his performances with a place on the shortlist for the monthly gong alongside five other players – Manchester City’s Joao Cancelo, Liverpool’s Mo Salah, Watford’s Ismaila Sarr, Antonio Rudiger of Chelsea and and Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United.
