Newcastle United picked up a vital 2-1 win over Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday, with Allan Saint-Maximin scoring a sensational goal to win the game for the Magpies.
The Frenchman has been a key player for Newcastle since joining the club, and his match-winning ability was on display once again when his side needed him the most.
The Magpies were in desperate need of a win, and Steve Bruce will be delighted with the way his players fought back from 1-0 down to secure the victory.
The result moved Newcastle up to 17th in the table, six points clear of Fulham. The Magpies will now fancy their chances of staying up.
They now have a game in hand on Fulham, and although they are not mathematically safe, the three points could make a massive difference.
Newcastle midfielder Isaac Hayden reacted to Saint-Maximin’s outstanding goal on Twitter.
That is simply sensational, no words needed.. 🤣🔥👏🏾 #Maxi

Despite going down to a Matej Vydra goal in the first half, the visitors did well to bounce back after the break through Jacob Murphy and Saint-Maximin.
