Newcastle United’s win isn’t the only thing that got people talking.

Miguel Almiron was the centre of attention last night after his on-pitch spat with fellow countryman Julio Enciso.

The younger Paraguayan agitated Newcastle’s no.24 after a dodgy tackle saw the pair have a fiery exchange and have to be separated. After the match however they immediately made up, with Enciso taking to Instagram to say: ‘Things that happen on the pitch stay on the pitch, I never want to fight with anyone.’

But this wasn’t the only thing that got fans talking last night. For Miggy, the Brighton match was a family affair.

The winger adorably carried his son onto the pitch as his mascot with many fans lauding his toddler son as ‘mini Miggy’ due to the striking resemblance.

And the tale of family resemblance doesn’t stop there. Almiron’s wife, Alexia Notto, posted a collection of photos to Instagram, but one in particular has stood out to Newcastle United fans.

Miggy’s mam was amongst the pictures and the similarity between the mother and son is undeniable.

One person took to Twitter to say ‘She looks more like Miggy in a wig than Miggy in an actual wig,’ resulting in another commenting: ‘Wiggy Almiron.’

The Almiron genes are strong and fans seem to love it.
