De Gea's best saves as he claims 2022/23 Golden Glove

Evan Ferguson has epitomised a sensational season for Brighton & Hove Albion in which they have secured European football for the first time in their history.

The 18-year-old striker netted twice in their 3-1 success over Southampton, as the club all but secured a top-six finish and a place in the UEFA Europa League.

The brace took Ferguson's tally to six Premier League goals for the season, twice as many as any other teenager, and earned him a place in the Team of the Week selected by Alan Shearer, the competition's record goalscorer and Hall of Fame inductee.
