Paraguay national team player Miguel Almiron was one of the absentees for Newcastle United during their crucial league trip to face West Brom at the Hawthorns in a week 28 game in the Premier League this season. Newcastle United and West Brom are actors as far as the relegation battle is concerned in the Premier League this season. The two teams met in the first game played on Sunday in the Premier League and they both had to settle for a goalless draw. Newcastle United had chances to win the game but the Joelinton-led forward line was not clinical enough to score the goals that could have taken the Magpies further away from the relegation zone. A lot of Newcastle United fans would have wanted Paraguay national team footballer Almiron to be fit for the game. He has shown that he’s more clinical in front of goal this season and his finishing could have proved useful for his team during the West Brom game. The Paraguay player missed the West Brom game because of the knee injury suffered during the last league game, a 1-1 draw at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers. The early update on the knee injury is that the Paraguay international won’t be back in action until next month.
