The Premier League’s all-time leading goalscorer Alan Shearer has selected Manchester City pair Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus in his Team of The Week.
Both played instrumental roles in the Citizens beating Watford 5-1 last weekend, with Jesus scoring four times and De Bruyne getting two assists. Shearer was particularly effusive in his praise of the Belgian playmaker, who he is running out of superlatives for:
“What can you say that hasn’t been said already? He has an outrageous crossing and passing ability.”
Two Arsenal stars, Bukayo Saka and Mohamed Elneny, were also named in Shearer’s eleven, following the Gunners’ win over Manchester United on Saturday afternoon.
West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, Burnley’s James Tarkowski, Brentford captain Pontus Jansson, Liverpool’s Andy Robertson and Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse were included, while Shearer also couldn’t help but name a couple of Newcastle players.
Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton were singled out following their victory over Norwich City, and Shearer even gave Magpies boss Eddie Howe his manager of the week.
