Joe Willock has become the youngest player to score five goals in a row in the Premier League since Jose Antonio Reyes did it for Arsenal in 2004.

Joe Willock’s loan at Newcastle couldn’t be going any better for the 21-year-old.

Finding the net six times, the midfielder has scored five Premier League goals in his last five Premier League appearances.

That stat is impressive enough on it’s own, never mind when you consider in the fact that four of those five have come against Tottenham, Liverpool, Leicester and Manchester City.

When he netted against City at the weekend, Willock was 21 years and 267 days old. Jose Reyes, who completed the feat in 2004, was 21 years 10 days old at the time.

Reye’s five came in the first five Premier League games of the 04/05 season and were scored against Everton, Middlesbrough, Blackburn, Norwich and Fulham.

Despite his form, Arsenal seem set on selling Willock this summer as they believe they can get around £20m for him.
