Newcastle midfielder Miguel Almiron endured another tough night this season as he was sent off for Paraguay on Thursday night.
The attacking midfielder, who has failed to register a goal or assist for Newcastle, was sent off for a second yellow card for diving.
Following this, we asked Newcastle fans if Steve Bruce should now drop Almiron for the next Premier League game.

READ NEWCASTLE VERDICT
Whilst Matt Ritchie is out injured, Almiron will probably keep his place in the team. Despite his poor form, there is very little in terms of a replacement for him amongst the substitutes and reserves.
When Ritchie returns from injury, Newcastle will have someone who can slot into the midfield and take his place. Whilst Ritchie is not a like-for-like replacement for Almiron, he could offer more in the final third than the Paraguayn.
