Barely a week goes by where Lewis Miley doesn't make an impressive impact for Newcastle United, and this weekend he arguably had his biggest moment in a black and white shirt.

In the Magpies' 3-0 win against Fuham, Miley, aged 17 years and 229 days, became the club's youngest ever goalscorer in the Premier League, and the eighth-youngest scorer for any side in the competition's history.

Miley has been rewarded with a place in the Team of the Week selected by Alan Shearer, the Premier League's all-time top scorer and Hall of Fame inductee.

“Produced some stunning saves and got a well-earned clean sheet.”

William Saliba (Arsenal)
“A tower of strength as Arsenal's defence kept Brighton out to take top spot.”

Michael Keane (Everton)
“Showed hunger and composure to get his goal. The added bonus of seven clearances indicates his importance.”

Raphael Varane (Man Utd)
“Nothing got past him. A huge performance to prevent Liverpool’s attack from scoring at Anfield.”

Lewis Miley (Newcastle)
“At 17 he becomes the youngest player ever to score for the Toon in the Premier League. Looks at ease at this level.”

Declan Rice (Arsenal)
“Never has a bad game. He has established himself as Arsenal’s midfield linchpin.”

Bruno Guimaraes (Newcastle)
“Ran the show, and that outside-of-the-boot cross for Dan Burn's goal was something special!”

Cole Palmer (Chelsea)
“Easily the best player on the pitch, he kept things ticking in attack with a goal and an assist.”

Dejan Kulusevski (Spurs)
“Delivered a wonderful cross for Richarlison’s opener and produced a smashing finish to secure the win for Spurs.”

“A hat-trick of assists that had it all - flair, finesse and execution.”

Manager: Ange Postecoglou (Spurs)
“Spurs' 10 men showed great resilience. Nott’m Forest away is never easy, but they played very well as a unit to win.”
