A number of Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to laud Miguel Almiron’s display as the Magpies produced arguably their best performance of the season on Saturday.
Steve Bruce’s side ended their lengthy run without a win as they beat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park. It was Callum Wilson who bagged the two goals, with both coming during the second-half.
Wilson, understandably, stole many of the headlines. But many fans were left lauding Almiron on social media following the win.
Like many of those around him, the Paraguayan seemed to put others on notice in midweek. The attacking midfielder scored in what was a much-improved Newcastle display.
And he built on that on Merseyside. As shown by Whoscored, he made three key passes. No player on other side managed to make more.
Meanwhile, he made two successful tackles and two interceptions. And he seemed to cover every single blade of grass inside Goodison Park in the victory.
His performance prompted many supporters to insist that he was outstanding. He has shown just how devastating he can be in more recent times.
And many fans clearly think that he is going to play a pivotal role if Newcastle are going to move themselves up the table.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Newcastle supporters reacted to the 26-year-old’s display…
A brilliant performance from NUFC players today!!! Passing the ball instead of just hitting it long great work rate. @CallumWilson and Miguel Almiron were superb! The whole team deserve credit today! A big 3 points for us. ⚫️⚪️👍🏻

How good was Miggy Almiron today? One of his best ever performances for us imo. It’ll go under the radar because of others (i.e Wilson, Lewis Schar) but damn, he was outstanding! #NUFC

Callum Wilson will get all the plaudits for today and maybe rightly so (what a player), but Miguel Almiron was absolutely tremendous. Never stopped working and much more of a threat in his actual position. #NUFC

Miggy Almiron has gone from not good enough to my favourite player at the moment #NUFC

Almiron, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The best player #NUFC have had in the last 10 years. Love the wee man. 🏁
