Allan Saint-Maximin Sent Declan Rice Back To Cobham With Outrageous Stepovers & Assist

Allan Saint-Maximin just produced some of the silkiest skills you'll ever see to provide an assist for Newcastle United - at the expense of Declan Rice.

Saint-Maximin is one of the Premier League's most exciting players and has kicked off his campaign in style within five minutes.

He collected the ball out on the right hand side and West Ham captain Rice though he'd halted his momentum.

But Saint-Maximin wasn't giving up that easily. He twisted and turned Rice on three separate occasions before whipping a cross in for Callum Wilson.

It was a delightful lob and Wilson headed home past Lukasz Fabianski to give Steve Bruce's side the lead.

Wilson is the one on the scoreboard, but it was Saint-Maximin who did most of the hard work.

Fans have reacted to the 24-year-old's electric display so far and they're hoping it's a sign of things to come.

Newcastle's lead wouldn't last however as West Ham equalised in the 18th minute through Aaron Cresswell.

Five minutes before half-time, the Magpies restored their lead through a Jacob Murphy header.
