The three vital elements Allan Saint-Maximin brings to this Newcastle United side

Invalid EmailA Maximin effort from the Saintly One of that moniker is urgently required at Goodison to rescue not only Newcastle United's imploding season but his bedevilled boss Steve Bruce.

Of course carrying the label of saviour at such an awful time is a massive burden to put upon a young man, only 23 years of age, a special talent but still not a full international, not a regular goalscorer.

Yet reality is much more significant than that and so at a sterile club desperate for some hope, a spark to ignite a fire, Saint-Maximin carries the weight of expectation into battle.

However above all Steve Bruce must change his dogged stance that has infuriated fans and failed to lift, inspire, or tactically organise an escape for his players.

Brighton have claimed eight points, Fulham six (all draws from nine matches), West Brom five and even tailed off Sheffield United have unbelievably harvested seven.

It all means United's lead over third-bottom Fulham has been cut to six points - and the Cottagers, who have a match in hand, play West Bromwich on Saturday.
