Premier League Champion hails display of Liverpool midfielder against Man Utd and names three Newcastle players in his team of the week

Liverpool's 2-0 victory over Manchester United had a titanic midfield showing at its heart, according to Alan Shearer.

The Premier League Champion says Jordan Henderson gave a "captain's performance" at Anfield to inspire his side to a 13th consecutive league win.

Henderson joins Virgil van Dijk and three Newcastle players in Shearer's Matchweek 23 best XI.

Nick Pope (BUR) | BUR 2-1 LEI

Made several stops including a penalty save to help his team earn a huge three points.

Max Aarons (NOR) | NOR 1-0 BOU

Gave a solid performance and offered width going forward.

Virgil van Dijk (LIV) | LIV 2-0 MUN

Defensively supreme yet again and weighed in with another important goal.

Federico Fernandez (NEW) | NEW 1-0 CHE

Solid as a rock. Never wavered when the going got tough.

Ciaran Clark (NEW) | NEW 1-0 CHE

Outstanding. Put in a man-of-the-match performance to resist the waves of Chelsea attacks.

Jordan Henderson (LIV) | LIV 2-0 MUN

Gave a captain's performance, took the battle to Man Utd and was unlucky to hit the post with a great shot.

Jack Grealish (AVL) | BHA 1-1 AVL

Must stay fit if Villa are to stay up. Brought quality to the attack and produced another clinical finish.

Isaac Hayden (NEW) | NEW 1-0 CHE

Worked his socks off in two positions and popped up with the dramatic winner!

Adama Traore (WOL) | SOU 2-3 WOL

Came to life with a brilliant second-half performance marked by two assists in this impressive comeback win.

Sergio Aguero (MCI) | MCI 2-2 CRY

Popped up with a quickfire double when his team needed him. Unfortunate not to be the match-winner with his two first-class finishes.

Raul Jimenez (WOL) SOU 2-3 WOL 

What a season he is having. His brace completed a stunning comeback and took his tally to 19 goals in all competitions.

Manager: Nuno Espirito Santo (WOL) SOU 2-3 WOL

Must have been some half-time team talk. He masterminded an incredible fightback with Wolves two goals down against an in-form Southampton side.
