Paraguayan international Miguel Almiron put in an incredible shift as Newcastle United secured a thrilling 3-2 win over Southampton in the Premier League yesterday.
The 26-year-old was outstanding for the home side and he managed to score a match-winning brace.
Apart from his goals, the attacking midfielder worked his socks off and helped out the side defensively. His work rate and creativity seem to have impressed the fans immensely.
Almiron has shown his quality every time he has been played in his natural position this season and the fans will be hoping for more of the same in the coming weeks.
Steve Bruce must look to use his key players in their natural roles if Newcastle are to succeed this season. He has often been criticised for his tendency to use the likes of Isaac Hayden in the full-back position for example.
The midfielder has five goals and an assist to his name so far this season and he has been one of the best performers at Newcastle.
The 26-year-old will be keen to build on his current run of form and guide Newcastle to a respectable finish in the Premier League.
Almiron has been excellent for the Magpies in his last four matches and here is what some fans had to say about his performance.
Almiron gets slated but for a poor team like us hes invaluable. Great work ethos. Play to his strengths, attack. Hes not a wing back!
