Newcastle United picked up a morale-boosting 2-0 win over Everton in the Premier League earlier today.
Steve Bruce was under pressure to guide his side back to winning ways and he will be delighted with the performance of his players.
Everton were the favourites heading into the game but the Toffees struggled to cope with Newcastle’s drive and determination throughout the 90 minutes.
There were several impressive performances across the pitch but Miguel Almiron was arguably the best player alongside Callum Wilson. Wilson will take the headlines because of his brace but Almiron was outstanding creatively.
#nufc’s Miguel Almirón created the most chances (3) vs Everton. Also made the second most attacking third passes (16) & ball recoveries (9).
The freedom to roam the pitch in this number 10 role at the top of a midfield diamond suits his infectious energy & clever movement. pic.twitter.com/FQib6Bx5Nc
First time I’ve enjoyed watching us play in months. Wilson with one of the most complete striker performances I’ve seen in years at Newcastle. A bit of creativity and service (not much to ask for) and he will score goals. Almiron outstanding as well. #nufc
