Goalkeeper makes PL Champion's Team of the Week after key saves against Man Utd

Bernd Leno again caught Alan Shearer’s eye with his performance against Manchester United on Sunday.

After his shutout in the 2-0 victory at Emirates Stadium, the Arsenal goalkeeper has been given a place in Shearer’s Team of the Week for the third time in a row.

"He again showed great agility," says Shearer of the German, who is joined in a 4-3-3 formation by his defensive colleagues Laurent Koscielny and Sead Kolasinac.
