Kieran Trippier helped his side to a comprehensive victory over Aston Villa and, for Alan Shearer, the display of the full-back at both ends of the pitch was instrumental in the 4-0 win.

Newcastle United have accumulated more points than any Premier League side in October and a third clean sheet in four matches has underscored their surge up to fourth place.

Against Villa, Trippier weighed in with the assist for Callum Wilson’s second goal, earning himself a place in Premier League record goalscorer and Hall of Fame inductee Shearer's Team of the Week and the accolade of “England’s best right-back.”
