Premier League Champion says Argentinian's goals for Chelsea are a mark of his quality as he names him in his MW25 best XI

The quality of Gonzalo Higuain's goals on his home debut on Saturday were such that Alan Shearer believes fans of the Premier League could be in for a real treat for the remainder of the campaign.

Higuain scored twice on his first Premier League start for Chelsea, helping them overwhelm Huddersfield Town 5-0, and Shearer can't wait to see more of the Argentinian's expertise in front of goal.

"He could be great to watch for the rest of the season," says the Premier League Champion.

Shearer's Team of the week
Ben Foster (WAT) | BHA 0-0 WAT

A clean sheet and a point was down to the Watford goalkeeper, who made some brilliant saves.

Sol Bamba (CAR) | CAR 2-0 BOU

Dominated the AFC Bournemouth forwards with a commanding performance in a very emotional game for Cardiff City.

Jamaal Lascelles (NEW) | TOT 1-0 NEW

The Newcastle captain didn’t deserve to be on the losing side as he defended very, very well.

Mamadou Sakho (CRY) | CRY 2-0 FUL

The Palace defender never gave Aleksandar Mitrovic a kick, and not many defenders can do that.

Matt Doherty (WOL) | EVE 1-3 WOL

The Irishman was part of another very impressive Wolves performance, winning a penalty and providing so many crosses.

Declan Rice (WHU) | WHU 1-1 LIV

The home-grown midfielder was very solid against some expensive Liverpool opponents. 

Nemanja Matic (MUN) | LEI 0-1 MUN

The Serb played the holding role perfectly for Man Utd, halting a lot of Leicester’s moves forward. He is a different player under this manager.

Jonny (WOL) | EVE 1-3 WOL

Along with Doherty the Spaniard provided the width from wing-back that Everton couldn’t deal with. One of the buys of the season.

Sergio Aguero (MCI) | MCI 3-1 ARS

Another hat-trick to take him to 10 now in the PL!!! It’s only a matter of time before he goes past my 11. He was at his brilliant best.

Bobby Reid (CAR) | CAR 2-0 BOU

The Bluebirds striker was one of the differences for his team, winning a vital three points with his two goals.

Gonzalo Higuain (CHE) | CHE 5-0 HUD

His first goal in the Premier League was the result of superb movement and finish, his second was a stunning curling shot from outside the box. This shows you how good he can be and he could be great to watch for the rest of the season.

Manager: Neil Warnock (CAR) | CAR 2-0 BOU

It has been a difficult time for the Cardiff manager but he has conducted himself brilliantly and despite everything managed to oversee an emotional win over AFC Bournemouth.
