Newcastle found their way to victory when Wolverhampton (2-1) came on Sunday.
In slow motion for a few weeks with the last two defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City, Newcastle revived by defeating Wolverhampton (2-1) on Sunday. The Magpies move up to 5th position, 4 points behind Tottenham.
While Wolves had equalized 20 minutes from the end, Hwang Hee-Chan taking advantage of a failed clearance from Kieran Trippier (70th) to respond to Alexander Isak’s opener (26th), it was Miguel Almiron which lifted St. James’ Park.
The small Paraguayan attacking midfielder was launched in place of Allan Saint-Maximin and gave his team the advantage with a shot from the left (79th), for his 11th goal of the season. A good operation for Newcastle, which benefits from the poor performance of Liverpool and Brighton this weekend.
