Some Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to slam Miguel Almiron, following the 1-0 win against Manchester United.
The Paraguay international is yet to score a goal or register an assist for the Magpies in 18 Premier League appearances for the club, and he seemed to panic in front of goal against the Red Devils.
One moment in which Sean Longstaff pinged a superb through ball into the 25-year-old’s path saw Almiron one-on-one with David de Gea, but he took far too long before firing straight at the sliding Harry Maguire.
The former Atlanta star had three shots – all of which were off target – and also failed to record a single key pass against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
For a man who commanded a then club-record fee of £20m, the Newcastle fans on Twitter have every right to criticise the attacker given his poor output since the move.
Let’s take a look at some of the Twitter reaction from the Newcastle supporters…
For a £21m attacking player, Almiron’s end product is awful. #nufc

If Almiron had already scored his first goal, he buries that all day. Nerves making him too hesitant #NUFC

Almiron is like a jigsaw, looks lovely when out the box but soon as goes in the box falls to pieces #nufc
