Allan Saint-Maximin appearance on list of top Premier League dribblers stats gives spark of hope
Allan Saint-Maximin has only made three starts and played 225 minutes in the Premier League so far.
However, in that brief time he has been easily Newcastle’s best attacking player.
Even if it is only in giving some hope for NUFC fans that there could be flair and a spark of inspiration this season in Newcastle’s attacking play.
Indeed, as you can see from this table below, the stats back up what our own eyes tell us, that Allan Saint-Maximin in only just over three and a half hours of football, has beaten plenty of opponents with his pace, dribbling technique and positive attitude.
As you can see from the table below, Allan Saint-Maximin has attempted 23 dribbles with 13 of them successful, a success rate of 57%.
If Steve Bruce changes the far too negative tactics, the young French winger will then hopefully get possession further up the pitch and start to do some real damage in that final third.
The Other 14 is a Twitter account that specialises in stats and tables for the players and teams other than the ‘big 6’ in the English Premier League.
Here The Other 14 have come up with some great analysis and their latest is a table showing which players have made the most successful dribbles in the course of these opening nine Premier League games.
Here’s hoping we can see this starting on Sunday, ASM getting the chance to have a right go at Wolves.
