ALLAN SAINT-MAXIMIN and Callum Wilson could rival Ant and Dec for the Toon’s favourite double act after their matchwinning heroics against Burnley.

Saint-Maximin bagged a goal and an assist for Wilson in a powerful man of the match display on his return from injury – until he hobbled off AGAIN with just under 20 minutes to go.

Wilson had assisted Saint-Maximin’s opener and the Frenchman returned the favour to set him up with a tap in four minutes after Ashley Westwood had equalised in the second-half.

Wilson then secured a brace and all three points with a cheeky dink from the penalty spot after Nick Pope brought down Saint-Maximin’s replacement Ryan Fraser.

Saint-Maximin got the party underway after he cut in and out to fashion an opening with six Burnley players around him just 14 minutes into the first half.

Moving the ball onto his right peg, the 23-year-old winger unleashed a stinging effort that England hopeful Pope could not keep out.

It capped a masterful first-half performance from the former Nice player with Sean Dyche‘s Clarets putting in a number of fouls in their desperate bid to stop his progress.

Burnley roared back into life after the break, dominating proceedings for the first 20 minutes after the interval.

And stand-in skipper Westwood helped convert their superiority by slamming home an equaliser after 61 minutes.

But Saint-Maximin rose to the fore again just four minutes later, skipping past defenders to slide a gorgeous ball across the box leaving Wilson the easiest of tap-ins to restore Newcastle‘s lead.

And it went from bad to worse for Burnley when Three Lions back-up Pope gave away a penalty by taking out sub Fraser.

Wilson calmly chipped his pen down the middle to make it four goals from four shots on target in four Prem games – since joining from relegated Bournemouth.

how chelsea could line up at burnley with hakim ziyech hudson odoi and christian pulisic all eyeing spot in attack

CHELSEA take on Burnley on Saturday afternoon full of confidence after their crushing win over Krasnodar in the Champions League.

The Blues stormed past the Russian side on Wednesday as four of their attacking stars all netted in the 4-0 drubbing.

Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic all got themselves on the score-sheet.

But Frank Lampard will find it difficult to start them all for the Premier League clash at Turf Moor.

Likely to field a 4-2-3-1, Edouard Mendy will retain his place in goal.

Reece James is set to start at right-back, with Ben Chilwell on the left.



Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma will likely continue their partnership in the heart of defence – keeping the likes of Fikayo Tomori and Andreas Christensen out of the XI.

In midfield N’Golo Kante and Jorginho will carry on in their deep, double-pivot, with Mateo Kovacic on the bench.

Kai Havertz is set to start in the No10 role, flanked by Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic, keeping Mason Mount out of the starting XI.

Timo Werner is expected start as the sole centre-forward, with Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud warming the bench.

However, for a bit of extra width, Lampard could play a 3-4-3, with Silva and Zouma joined by Cesar Azpilicueta in the heart of defence.

Chilwell and James would then push further up in the wing-back roles – with Kante and Jorginho still in the middle.

Hudson-Odoi will hope to get a look in on one of the flanks in this set-up.

Chelsea travel to Burnley on Saturday October 31 with kick-off at 3pm.
