Young midfielder was key in the Foxes' win at Sheffield United and features in Alan Shearer's Matchweek 3 Team of the Week

The headlines may have been stolen by Harvey Barnes' wonder strike in Leicester City's 2-1 win at Sheffield United, but it was team-mate Hamza Choudhury who stood out for Alan Shearer and made the PL Champion's Team of the Week.

Choudhury, 21, laid the foundations for a victory at Bramall Lane that maintained the Foxes' unbeaten start to 2019/20 .
