Newcastle’s Allan Saint-Maximin brutally mocks an Everton fan’s Twitter reply after scoring in their huge win on Sunday afternoon.
Newcastle record a vital first win in eight Premier League games; Saint-Maximin set up Jacob Murphy before netting a sublime winner as the Magpies move six points clear of relegation zone.
It was the winning goalscorer who couldn’t help but reply to a fan who had some choice words of criticism over his recent display.
Patrick Williams (Twitter handle @pwefc1) wrote to the player: “Overrated player that wouldn’t even make our bench.”
@asaintmaximin superbly hit back to the hater, saying: “Thank you for your comment Patrick 🤝” then added a photo of a mic held to a bin.

Newcastle forward Allan Saint-Maximin told Sky Sports:
“I feel really great. Everybody knows this game is really important for Newcastle. I give this win to the supporters who couldn’t be here.
“I’m really happy to help my team with an assist and goal in this important game.
“I was really frustrated when we were losing 1-0 and I said to the coach I would like to have time [and come onto the pitch].
“[This win] is a big opportunity. We are six points over Fulham. Now we just have to keep going forward and try to do the best we can do against West Ham.
“It’s important to come back stronger after being injured.”
Newcastle manager Steve Bruce told Sky Sports:
“This win is big but there’s still a bit to go. Certainly it’s a helping hand. It’s an important game, so to win it was very good.
“It’s been difficult with our injuries. You can see what Allan Saint-Maximin brings to the team. We’ve missed that bit of quality and excitement.
“To be missing your top players constantly, it affects teams.
“We didn’t play well enough in the first half. Second half we were a different animal. We can improve of course but it’s there for everyone to see.”
On Newcastle’s first-half penalty shout: “For me it’s a penalty because it’s dangerous play. We saw the boy get sent off for Leeds for dangerous play yesterday. Wasn’t that dangerous?
“We can’t get carried away but [four points from two games] in the Premier League is huge. It sets us up nicely, we’ve got some tough challenges but this helps.
“Let’s hope our players stay fit. As good as I think I am, I need our best players.”
Newcastle’s Jacob Murphy, speaking to Premier League Productions: “We saw in last week’s game against Spurs a doggedness and resilience about us, and we showed that again.
“Allan just laid the ball into my path and I made a clean contact. The past two results have have given us a platform to get away from the relegation zone. It’s a group that’s together. We’re a confident group.”
Burnley’s Matej Vydra, speaking to Sky Sports: “It was the same last weekend. We were so deep. The game totally changed and we lost again. In the Premier League there is so much quality.
“We were unlucky because we just didn’t score that second goal. We have to be focused for 95 minutes. I don’t know what’s happened the last two weeks. We have to be focussed every single game and take some points because we have lost six points from last two games.”
Burnley boss Sean Dyche, speaking to Sky Sports: “I don’t think we threw it away but I think we could have done better.
“We gave them two chances. There were a lot of good things about the performance but there’s a sense of frustration. Their keeper made a couple of big saves. We’re a bit limited at the minute.
“It’s a strange season for us. We played well for a large period of the game last week and didn’t see it through. The same things has happened this week. We’re not a million miles away.”
