The match was heading for a draw but Almiron sparked life into the game after he volleyed home with Andy Carroll providing the assist.
The Paraguayan attacker has finally ended his Newcastle goal-drought on his 27th Premier League appearance since joining the Magpies from Atlanta United for £20m in January.
It was Newcastle’s third victory in their last four games, and they are now level on points with Manchester United and one point behind Tottenham.
Newcastle enjoyed only 42% of possession and attempted eight shots of which they managed to keep only three on target, according to BBC Sport.
