Almiron Shines in Home Debut as Newcastle Beats 10-Man Huddersfield

Almiron Shines in Home Debut as Newcastle Beats 10-Man Huddersfield

The Magpies eased their relegation concerns when they overcame Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon, and a win over the Clarets could move them up a further two places in the table. He's shown the form that got him into the England squad and that appears to have given those in front of him real confidence.

"I said before that nearly everybody is fit, we are winning, we played well (against Huddersfield Town), we created chances, so everybody is more or less happy", the Newcastle official website quote him as saying ahead of the game.

Rafa Benitez says he is focused on keeping Newcastle United in the Premier League and would not be drawn on speculation linking him with Leicester City.

However, I'm expecting this to be a fairly tight affair with Burnley likely to utilise their new-found defensive strength as they try to keep a happier home crowd quiet.

That's been the case in exactly half (7 of 14) of Burnley's away games this season, which is pretty remarkable when you consider how poor they were defensively earlier in the campaign.

It's now important to settle down in the Premier League and understand the mentality of the PL.

Univision Anchor Jorge Ramos and Team Detained in Venezuela During Maduro Interview
When they finally did have a chance to chat with Maduro, he apparently "didn't like" their questions. Coronell tweeted that he had spokmen with Ramos, who told him that he and his team had been freed.

The bet which tempts me in is the 8/5 on offer about the game being goalless at half time (under 0.5 first-half goals).

Newcastle extended their lead six minutes later when Perez beat Lossl from Rondon's knock-down to leave the visitors in deep trouble.

One change for Burnley as well. "It's not the priority- the priority is Huddersfield and getting the points to stay up".

A wonderful counter-attack nearly saw Almiron claim a goal early on, his dinked finish over Jonas Lossl striking the left-hand post, which Rondon then rattled on the follow up.

Just over five minutes later the points were effectively sealed as Yedlin and Rondon combined after Almiron's pass and Perez volleyed into the bottom-left corner.
