Alan Shearer Premier League team of week sees 2 Newcastle United stars included
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 performances in the away draw at Liverpool.
Alan Shearer selecting Allan Saint-Maximim, with the French winger the main threat to Liverpool throughout the game, especially the first half.
ASM completed eight successful dribbles in the match and it taking some cynical challenges and yellow cards for the scousers to stop him.
Also in this Alan Shearer team of the week is Martin Dubravka.
The man of the match (in my opinion anyway) keeping United in the game with a series of excellent saves, keeping the score down to 0-1 before that late late equaliser from Joe Willock.
The Alan Shearer Premier League Team (and Manager) of the Week choices:
Martin Dubravka (Newcastle United)
Seamus Coleman (Everton)
Andreas Christensen (Chelsea)
Pascal Struijk (Leeds)
Ben Chilwell (Chelsea)
Kalvin Phillips (Leeds)
Dwight McNeil (Burnley)

Chris Wood (Burnley)

Manager of the week:
