FPL Gameweek 26 – head-to-head comparisons: Miguel Almiron vs Allan Saint-Maximin
Newcastle's hopes of scoring goals against Arsenal will depend largely upon their two speedsters in attacking midfield, Miguel Almiron (£5.8m) and Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.4m). The latter starred in Newcastle's FA Cup fourth round replay win away at Oxford, scoring the winner deep into extra time. Almiron has the most amount of FPL points from all Newcastle midfielders this season with 70.
A fully fit Saint-Maximin gives Newcastle a very dangerous weapon in their arsenal and his pace could be the key to Newcastle hitting the Arsenal on the break. He is the inform player of the two after his goal against Oxford and we'd narrowly edge him over Almiron.
Verdict: Allan Saint-Maximin
