Premier League's all-time record goalscorer hails Aston Villa striker's performance as he picks his MW4 Team of the Week

Alan Shearer knows a great hat-trick when he sees one. After all, he held the Premier League record for most trebles scored until Sergio Aguero surpassed his total of 11 in January. 

And while Ollie Watkins has only scored one to date, the fact that he did so with his first-ever Premier League goals against champions Liverpool has mightily impressed Shearer.

The Aston Villa striker struck a perfect hat-trick in Sunday's sensational 7-2 win over Jurgen Klopp's team, earning a place in the competition's all-time leading goalscorer's Team of the Week.
