Miguel Almiron once again started in the Premier League during the defeat to Liverpool – and some Newcastle United fans on Twitter were critical of his performance.
Steve Bruce saw his side surrender an early lead to end up losing 3-1 at Anfield.
Jetro Willems scored a thunderous opener for the visitors, but Liverpool responded with Sadio Mane (two) and Mohamed Salah on the scoresheet to earn three points for the table toppers.
The Magpies had to defend for most of the contest as expected, but looked to counter attack with pace when they could and ask questions going the other way.
Almiron is an ever-present that has started every league game so far this season, but he’s yet to make his mark for Bruce’s team.
The right-winger has electric pace to terrorise defenders and a great work-rate, but once again his end product is just coming up short.
He’s now played 15 games since his move to St James’ Park in January, with the attacker providing no goals or no assists so far.
A selection of Newcastle supporters on social media were left frustrated with Almiron’s latest display and don’t believe he impacted the contest enough.
The 25-year-old scored in the international break for Paraguay, but needs to try replicate some goalscoring form for his club quickly.
Here are some Newcastle fans commenting on Almiron:
That’s 9 times this season Almiron been off side – highest in PL – a real problem and so unnecessary #nufc
