G-Owen Places

Michael Owen posted his highest score of the season in the Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League, by helping Newcastle United to a derby victory over Sunderland.

The 28-year-old England international took his tally for the season to 12 with a fine double as the Magpies finally ended their fears of being dragged into the closing stages of the relegation dogfight.

Owen also contributed 15 passes and two dribbles in registering 46 points, which was the second-highest individual score of the round and enough to be in the Team of the Week.

Owen is the leading Newcastle player in the Index, sitting 62nd with 338 points while Steven Taylor (321) and Nicky Butt (296) are also in the top 100, sitting 74th and 90th respectively.

Analysis of all Premier League games is taking place throughout the season and the players in the Actim Index Team of the Week are:
