You can tell Newcastle have played well when a Magpie or two ends up in Alan Shearer’s Team of the Week.
Newcastle stopped the rot on Saturday at Wolves mainly due to the heroic exploits of two players in Miguel Almiron and Martin Dubravka.
Alan Shearer has selected both for his Team of the Week.

Dubravka has been selected several times by Alan Shearer, but we believe this is just the second time for Miguel Almiron. Both Dubravka and Almiron were chosen by Alan in our 1-0 win against Crystal Palace just before Christmas.
Those were the days as we had won three of four and were looking primed to climb the table. However, as it turns out, that was the last time Newcastle have won.
Though the lads played very well on Saturday despite facing adversity with both Paul Dummett and Dwight Gayle forced off early with injuries leaving Bruce again with a selection nightmare for the FA Cup.
Hopefully, we have enough quality to see off Rochdale in the second attempt. With this one at St James Park, there’s no excuse for not advancing.
What Will Be The Result Of FA Cup Replay Against Rochdale?
- Win (80%, 1,306 )
