Premier League Champion hails the Dutchman's brilliant goal and performance as he names his Team of the Week

Georginio Wijnaldum's wonderful goal against AFC Bournemouth was pivotal as Liverpool returned to winning ways at the weekend, and Alan Shearer says the Dutchman ran the midfield in Liverpool's 3-0 victory.

Wijnaldum sublimely lobbed Cherries goalkeeper Artur Boruc, earning him a place alongside Liverpool team-mate Andrew Robertson in Shearer's Team of the Week.

"A brilliant goal and performance," Shearer said. "Gini ran the midfield, helping Liverpool to three much-needed points after two draws."

Shearer's Team of the Week
Tom Heaton (BUR) | BHA 1-3 BUR

He made four fantastic first-half saves to help Burnley to three huge points.

Kyle Walker (MCI) | MCI 6-0 CHE

Eden Hazard did not have a kick. Enough said.

Aymeric Laporte (MCI) | MCI 6-0 CHE

The Frenchman is having a superb season and had another excellent game against Chelsea.

Chris Smalling (MUN) | FUL 0-3 MUN

Bullied Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Andrew Robertson (LIV) | LIV 3-0 BOU

An impressive performance in both defending and going forward.

Georginio Wijnaldum (LIV) | LIV 3-0 BOU

A brilliant goal and performance. Gini ran the midfield, helping Liverpool to three much-needed points after two draws.

Paul Pogba (MUN) | FUL 0-3 MUN

Man of the Match. Strength, skill, precision, pace and two goals. He is another who is a completely different player under this manager.

Anthony Martial (MUN) | FUL 0-3 MUN

A stunning goal and in brilliant form.

Chris Wood (BUR) | BHA 1-3 BUR

Two great finishes and led the line superbly for the Clarets.

Sergio Aguero (MCI) | MCI 6-0 CHE

Another hat-trick from a world-class player. Might as well say 'well done' now as it's only really a matter of time before he goes ahead of me!

Raheem Sterling (MCI) | MCI 6-0 CHE

Wow! He ran Cesar Azpilicueta ragged and bagged another two goals.

Manager: Sean Dyche (BUR) | BHA 1-3 BUR

Another impressive win for Dyche, whose side are moving away from danger with an impressive seven-match unbeaten run.
