Alan Shearer picks Premier League team of the week – Two feature from Newcastle United

8 months ago

Alan Shearer has picked his team of the week.

The 11 players who most impressed him in the Premier League this past weekend.

The Magpies legend also choosing a manager of the week.

No surprise that Alan Shearer makes Allan Saint-Maximin one of his selections, on Match of The Day on Saturday he had this to say about the winger:

“Saint-Maximin, who I thought ran them ragged all afternoon. Same thing again, (ASM) flicks it over, Almiron pointing where he wants it again, they get the corner and also score from that one as well.

“The pace is staggering from Saint-Maximin.

“Ball in behind, counter-attack is superb and if we’re being critical he (ASM) has to score, brilliant to get there but that should be in the back of the net, that would have been game over.

“Almiron and Saint-Maximin again…(the West Ham players) can’t get near him, should put it in the back of the net, first time and the second time, then he sets up Almiron , he can’t put it into the back of the net but they are getting into those positions.”

Whilst as well as Saint-Maximin in the team, Alan Shearer makes Steve Bruce his manager/head coach of the week.
