Newcastle boss Howe: Almiron an absolute workhorse for us

Newcastle United star Miguel Almiron will be trying to achieve what he has only managed once for the club against Brentford.

The Magpies forward scored back to back goals for the team against Bournemouth and West Ham in 2020, during the Project Lockdown matches.

He will now be hoping to manage that feat after scoring against Fulham, when they take on Brentford next time around.

Manager Eddie Howe said about Almiron post-game, "He will be judged in lots of different ways Miggy, because he's not just a creative player. He is an absolute workhorse for us. He does so much out of possession, so much good work and unseen good work that benefits the team.

"But ultimately as an attacking player - he will be judged on goals, assists and product. So to come away with two goals away from home, a long range goal and tap in is a great thing for him to take from Fulham."
