Alan Shearer picks Premier League team of the week – Including two Newcastle United stars
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 including two from Newcastle United after their displays against Wolves.
No surprise that Alan Shearer includes Martin Dubravka as one of his selections.
The NUFC goalkeeper was man of the match (yet again!) as he earned United a point with three saves after efforts on goal from inside the six yard box.
As for outfield players, the Newcastle United legend also picks goalscorer Miguel Almiron.
The Paraguayan was the best outfield player for Newcastle by a massive distance.
Both Newcastle players deserving their place in this Alan Shearer Premier League team of the week but I wouldn’t have envied him trying to find a third NUFC player to include…
