Jeremy Doku produced an exhilarating display in Manchester City's 6-1 thrashing of AFC Bournemouth last Saturday to become the youngest player in Premier League history to record five goal involvements in a match.

The Belgian winger had the Bournemouth defenders on strings, as a perfect mixture of speed and skill allowed Doku to pick out his team-mates and score at will.

This performance has landed Doku a well earned spot in the Team of the Week selected by Alan Shearer, the Premier League's record goalscorer and Hall of Fame inductee.
