They were Martin Dubravka, Jetro Willems and Jonjo Shelvey.
He has included Dubravka and Shelvey in his Premier League team of the week but instead of Willems, he has West Ham’s Aaron Cresswell at left-back.
The third player to make his PL team of this past week is Federico Fernandez, who was outstanding at the heart of defence.
On Match of The Day on Saturday, Alan Shearer had this to say about Jonjo Shelvey:
