The reverse fixture at St. James' Park earlier in the season saw Miguel Almiron open his goalscoring account for Newcastle just before Christmas. Crystal Palace are not in the best of form at the moment however, from a Newcastle perspective, the biggest question is whether they can score a goal.

I have seen quite a few posts on various pages, twitter comments, YouTube etc. Calling this lad 'overrated' or 'not up to standard' is very fickle in my view.
