The Frenchman came produced a Man of the Match performance off the bench to inspire Newcastle to a 2-1 win over Burnley.

The check inside from the edge of the box sent Tarkowski to the shops but it also sold the camera operator, who panned briefly before capturing the moment Saint-Maximin found the net with his left foot.
