Premier League's record goalscorer hails Newcastle winger as he names his best XI for Matchweek 3

Few people would have expected Newcastle United to come away with a point against Manchester City, but thanks to an impressive display from Allan Saint-Maximin, they were unlucky not to emerge with a victory.

Alan Shearer has hailed the winger's display during the thrilling 3-3 draw at St James' Park and the way he tormented the reigning champions' defence.

Saint-Maximin is one of four Newcastle players selected by Shearer, the Premier League's record goalscorer and a Hall of Fame inductee, in his Team of the Week.
