FIFA 21 TOTW 29: Allan Saint-Maximin in line for 85-rated ST card after inspiring Newcastle comeback

Could this be the result that turns Newcastle's season around?

Allan Saint-Maximin was the hero for Steve Bruces' side on Sunday, coming off the bench to inspire his side to a 2-1 victory which moves the Geordies six points clear of the relegation zone.

After Fulham's defeat to Wolves on Friday night, Newcastle knew that victory at Turf Moor could give them a huge advantage in the race to avoid the drop.

However, trailing 1-0 with just over half an hour to go, Bruce called for reinforcements in the form of Saint-Maximin.

The Frenchman's impact couldn't have been better, assisting Josh Murphy just two minutes after coming off the bench before grabbing a fine goal of his own five minutes later.

Newcastle hung on for the victory and a vital three points in their quest to remain in the Premier League next season.

Saint-Maximin's heroics should be rewarded with a spot in the upcoming Team of the Week, TOTW 29.

With an 83-rated TOTW card already to his name, the FIFA favourite would be jumping to a minimum of an 84 OVR, though we are expecting an 85-rated card.

Here is what you can expect to see in terms of ratings.

Upgrades

Saint-Maximin showed exactly what he can do with the ball at his feet, firing a firece left footed effort past Nick Pope at his near post to secure the three points.

As a result, we're expecting to see the Newcastle man's shooting to jump into the 80's for the first time this year.

Expect to see noticable upgrades to his pace, dribbling and passing too.

Position Change

Saint-Maximin should also see his position changed on his prosepctive TOTW card.

The French forward is a LM on both his base card and his first inform, though he was played in a more central role on Sunday afternoon, which means an ST Saint-Maximin could be on the cards.

This would be a hugely signficant position change, one which would see his value shoot up significantly too.

Estimated Costs

So how much would an 85-rated ST Saint Maximin trade for?

Well, Saint-Maximin's 86-rated, ST FUT Freeze card is currently trading for around 400,000 coins. Although that card comes with altered stats, including reduced pace.

Should we see the Frenchman included, then we're expecting to see him trade for between 300-350,000 coins, though that value should drop slightly after the buzz surrounding his release dies down.
