“We all know his value” – Many Newcastle United fans are fuming to discover that Miguel Almiron has been included in WhoScored’s worst-rated Premier League team of the season – which seems a bit harsh on Miggy.

The Paraguayan international’s struggles in front of goal have been well documented, but he has contributed a lot to this side.

Almiron’s work rate and pace create opportunities for others, and though he has no direct assist, he has had a lot of key passes that have led to goals.

If the £18m rated man were playing that bad, then he wouldn’t be included in Steve Bruce’s starting XI every week.

Some of the other players selected in the team have been awful, and Almiron hasn’t.

Pablo Fornals, for example, was signed for £24m by West Ham and has made 11 appearances and has just looked lost in the intensity of the Premier League.

Maya Yoshida has played his part in a horrendous start to the season for Southampton and in the seven games he has played his team have conceded 19 goals.

Does Almiron deserve to be in this WhoScored team?

Yes, where is the end product?

No, he is playing a crucial role

The point is that other players have been far worse than Almiron, and that is why he should not be in this WhoScored side.

A lot of Newcastle fans are unhappy that Almiron is in this team.
