French winger stars as Newcastle win 4-1 at Vitality Stadium to increase Cherries' relegation fears

Allan Saint-Maximin set up three goals as Newcastle United triumphed 4-1 at AFC Bournemouth, securing a third win in four matches.

The French winger stole possession from Jefferson Lerma in the fifth minute and freed Dwight Gayle, who found the bottom corner.

Saint-Maximin then dribbled to the byline on the half-hour mark and cut the ball back for Sean Longstaff, who fired into the roof of the net.

The Frenchman again provided the assist as Longstaff’s replacement Miguel Almiron curled in a fine finish on 57 minutes.

And Newcastle scored again on 77 minutes when Valentino Lazaro struck his first Premier League goal from Jonjo Shelvey’s pass.

The Cherries pulled a goal back in stoppage time through Dan Gosling.
