The record-breaking Paraguayan playmaker stole the show in his first start for the Magpies on Saturday, drawing a game-changing early red card and orchestrating the Newcastle attack from the left side of midfield in a 2-0 Premier League win over Huddersfield Town. Having had Tommy Smith sent off for a risky tackle on Almiron after 20 minutes, the visitors were on the back foot for the majority of the game.

Newcastle doubled their advantage six minutes later, Perez firing in this time after Yedlin had been afforded the freedom of the Terriers penalty area to head Almiron's looping cross towards his team-mate.

"You wouldn't call the MLS perhaps the greatest league, but Atlanta are a very good team in that league and he was a big part of it".

Kukushkin loses in Open 13 Provence final
Kukushkin survived an early break point but could do nothing when serving to stay in the first set at 6-5. Tstisipas improves to 2-2 in finals (he won 2018 Sydney) while Kukushkin falls to 1-3.


Over that eight-game period, only the two Manchester clubs have won more points.

Almiron might have already made his mark by that point with an audacious lofted shot which came back off a post, and he received rapturous applause as he was replaced by Christian Atsu with nine minutes remaining.

DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle): With Huddersfield offering little in the way of attacking threat, the American was able to get forward at will and was central in both goals, feeding the ball into unsafe areas where it was asking to be finished. Smith vies for a 50-50 with Almiron and somewhat lunges into the tackle.

Huddersfield were fortunate to go in at the break with the scores goalless.

"Burnley are doing quite well, so we have to play with the same intensity as today and try to get three points in the next one and carry on".

However, the dam finally broke 59 seconds into the second half, DeAndre Yedlin controlling Florian Lejeune's cross-field ball and playing in Perez, who combined with Isaac Hayden to tee up Rondon to fire through Lossl's legs.
