Newcastle took the lead in the 16th minute when Ciaran Clark lost his marker from a free-kick to head in the opener.
Federico Fernandez scored five minutes later to give the Magpies a healthy 2-0 lead.
Steve Bruce’s side were extremely good in the first half and created plenty more chances to extend their lead. Jonjo Shelvey scored the third goal with a precise free-kick after half-time.
Fabian Balbuena and Robert Snodgrass scored for the home side but Newcastle did well to see off the challenge in the end.
Saint-Maximin, who joined during the summer transfer window from Nice on a big-money transfer, is quickly becoming a favourite among the fans.
