An exhilarating display by Alexander Isak helped inspire Newcastle United to their biggest win of the season, a 6-1 rout of top-four rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

The striker's two goals and all-round performance have earned him a place in Premier League record goalscorer Alan Shearer's Matchweek 32 Team of the Week, along with three other Newcastle stars.


Daniel Iversen (Leicester)
"How crucial could his brilliant late stop to deny Ruben Neves an equaliser be?”

Timothy Castagne (Leicester)
“His first goal since August was a decisive one and boosts Leicester’s hopes of safety.”

Michael Keane (Everton)
“Kept Crystal Palace's attack quiet and helped Everton to their first clean sheet in five Premier League matches.”

Andrew Robertson (Liverpool)
“All the spotlight has been on [Trent] Alexander-Arnold but Robbo is back to his best form for Liverpool, setting up Diogo Jota’s second goal with another quality assist.”

Carlos Alcaraz (Southampton)
“Excellent at both ends, scoring the first and setting up the second, before a stunning goalline clearance.”

Declan Rice (West Ham)
“He was everywhere and led by example, not for the first time. What a week for him and West Ham.”

Joe Willock (Newcastle)
“His assist for the first of Isak’s two goals is one of the best passes you will see this season.”

Jacob Murphy (Newcastle)
“Two goals in the first 10 minutes! What a performance!"

Alexander Isak (Newcastle)
“Ran the show and was the best player on the pitch. Another brilliant brace.”

Diogo Jota (Liverpool)
"Back in form, he fully deserved his two goals and was a threat throughout.”

Joelinton (Newcastle)
Spurs couldn’t handle him. Capped an immense display with a deserved and well-taken goal.”

Manager: Eddie Howe (Newcastle)
“After the loss to Villa, he demanded a reaction and, boy, did he get one!”
