Newcastle fans frustrated with Miguel Almiron after Watford draw

Newcastle United drew 1-1 against Watford at St James’ Park in the Premier League – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter voiced their frustration towards attacker Miguel Almiron for his display.

The Magpies had to settle for a point, as Fabian Schar’s strike ruled out an early goal from Will Hughes in the first-half.

Steve Bruce’s team have four points from four league games going into the international break and it’s been a mediocre start to the campaign.

They have had the highs of winning away at Tottenham so far, but there is still a lack of a clinical touch in the final third and it’s something that manager Bruce needs to try find a solution for.

Newcastle now have a break before they return to action on 14 September away at early league leaders Liverpool.

A selection of Newcastle supporters on social media criticised Almiron for his display and believe he wasn’t good enough for them against Watford.

The 25-year-old attacker was caught offside five times during the match, which is even more frustrating considering he has pace to burn and can afford to give defenders an advantage.

He spurned a good opportunity to score and has now played 14 first-team games for the club without a goal or assist.

The Paraguay international can’t be faulted for his work-rate or the excitement he can bring to the attack with his speed, but a lack of end product is a major issue for him that now has some supporters questioning him too.

Here are some Newcastle fans on Almiron:
