Allan Saint-Maximin’s impressive displays since the turn of the year have earned him a spot in the WhoScored.com Premier League Team of 2020 – alongside the likes of Mo Salah, Kevin De Bruyne and Bruno Fernandes.
The side is selected based on stats and match ratings of players that have played at least five games this calendar year, and WhoScored have recognised Saint-Maximin with a score of 7.40 to see him occupy the left-wing berth.
Here is their team of 2020:
Saint-Maximin’s most notable performances in 2020 have been against Southampton in our last league outing and in the FA Cup against Oxford, both games in which his goal earned us the win (not that his display in the latter fixture would’ve contributed to this Premier League rating)
His inclusion in this team shows he’s been worth every penny of the £16million we paid for him from Nice last summer, with him proving to be our best bit of summer business as things stand.
Hopefully we see him strutting his stuff at St James’ Park before too long!
