Alan Shearer praises the Gunners midfielder whom he names in his Matchweek 6 Team of the Week

A "warrior" display from Matteo Guendouzi helped Arsenal beat Aston Villa 3-2 and earned the midfielder a place in Alan Shearer's Team of the Week from the sixth round of matches.

An ever-present for Unai Emery's side this season, Guendouzi was a powerhouse as Arsenal twice came from behind, and with a man down, to seal a dramatic late win.

Lukasz Fabianski (WHU) | WHU 2-0 MUN

The West Ham United goalkeeper made a vital save when his side were 1-0 up against Manchester United.

A superb goal by the right-back capped a very good performance by Jurgen Klopp's table-toppers.

The AFC Bournemouth centre-back produced a powerful defensive display, not just scoring the opening goal at St Mary's.

The Turkish centre-back was solid, strong and defended very well against Harry Kane.

Aaron Cresswell (WHU) | WHU 2-0 MUN

The left-back came into the West Ham side and made an impact at both ends. He scored a stunning free-kick and didn't give anything away defensively either.

The young Frenchman made the most passes and created three chances. Arsenal needed a warrior to get past Villa and he turned up.

The Spanish magician was outstanding again. I just love watching him play.
