Alan Shearer Premier League team of week includes 2 former Newcastle United players

2 weeks 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 including two former Newcastle United players.

They both featured for Norwich City as the Canaries picked up their first point and clean sheet at Burnley.

One-time NUFC keeper Tim Krul and central defender Grant Hanley starring for Norwich City.

That clean sheet means that now Newcastle United are joint top when it comes to conceding goals this season, a massive 16 goals in only seven games, the same as the Canaries.

There is also one player in the Alan Shearer team of the week who played at Molineux on Saturday.

However, predictably it is not a Newcastle United player, instead Hwang Hee-Chan is chose by Shearer, after two very smart finishes for Wolves, though poor defending by NUFC.

Krul (Norwich)

Azpilicueta (Chelsea)
