Newcastle United put some breathing room between themselves and the relegation zone with a comfortable 2-0 win over Premier League strugglers Huddersfield Town at St James’ Park on Saturday.

The fixture also marked Miguel Almiron’s full debut for the Magpies. The 25-year-old attacking midfielder became the Tyneside club’s most expensive ever signing in January when he arrived for £20 million from MLS outfit Atlanta United.

The 14-cap Paraguay international impressed against the Terriers, bringing pace, energy and invention to Rafa Benitez’s side’s play. He also seemed to combine well with his fellow attackers, especially Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez.
