With the Magpies 1-0 down to a Matej Vydra strike at Turf Moor, the Frenchman was sent on alongside Callum Wilson in the 57th minute by Steve Bruce.
Two minutes later and the former Nice man had assisted Jacob Murphy's leveller with a tidy dribble and lay-off down the right.

It's the Allan Saint-Maximin show at Turf Moor.#NUFC
But the 24-year-old went one better in the 64th minute when he embarked on a mazy run from his own half and slotted home with his left foot to put Newcastle in the lead and complete the turnaround for the visitors.

He celebrated in typical fashion by busting out some moves - a fitting action after dancing and chopping past James Tarkowski on his way to scoring a fine goal.
The definition of an inspired substitution, it was the second time Saint-Maximin had scored and assisted in the same game this season.
The other outing was also against Burnley in the reverse fixture at St James' Park.

Saint-Maximin, who has serious "streets will never forget" vibes about him, was named as Man of the Match after lighting up what was a fairly drab early kick-off on Sunday.
Thanks to his match-winning display, Newcastle claimed a vital win in their push to avoid relegation to the Championship - particularly with tough games against West Ham, Liverpool, Arsenal, Leicester City and Manchester City coming up.
