Competition's record goalscorer hails Leeds striker after his hat-trick at Aston Villa

Alan Shearer knows a thing or two about scoring Premier League hat-tricks, having scored 11 of them, second only to Sergio Aguero's 12.

And the competition's all-time record goalscorer was hugely impressed by Patrick Bamford's classy treble at Aston Villa last Friday.

Villa had conceded only two goals in their opening four matches, but Bamford beat that total by himself in the space of 20 minutes.

In doing so he earned a place in Shearer's Matchweek 6 Team of the Week.

Edouard Mendy (CHE) MUN 0-0 CHE

Made a string of saves. Yet to concede in his two Premier League matches, he has given Chelsea's defence much-needed confidence and security.

Stuart Dallas (LEE) AVL 0-3 LEE

Won his duels to help his side keep a clean sheet and contributed to a succession of passing moves at the other end in a solid shift at right-back.

Toby Alderweireld (TOT) BUR 0-1 TOT

He got a nasty cut above his eye early on but didn't back down in his aerial duels with Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood.

Jannik Vestergaard (SOU) SOU 2-0 EVE

High-flying Everton managed only two shots on target, with their in-form striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin kept very quiet.

Ben Chilwell (CHE) MUN 0-0 CHE

Having shown his attacking threat in previous matches, here the Chelsea left-back displayed his defensive ability with a disciplined performance. 

Sadio Mane (LIV) LIV 2-1 SHU

He can hurt you in the centre or out wide. His close-range header led to Roberto Firmino's equaliser and he set up the winner with a great cross.

James Ward-Prowse (SOU) SOU 2-0 EVE

He ran the midfield against the leaders and scored the opening goal with a well-timed run and emphatic finish.

Declan Rice (WHU) WHU 1-1 MCI

West Ham United's captain protected his defence while also springing counter-attacks, completing every single pass he made.

Wilfried Zaha (CRY) FUL 1-2 CRY

He provided a clever assist and then broke into the box himself to score his fifth goal of the campaign, already beating his total from last season.

Danny Ings (SOU) SOU 2-0 EVE

With two assists, he showed he has more than just goals to his game. He is such a well-rounded striker.

Patrick Bamford (LEEAVL 0-3 LEE

What do I need I say? Each goal was better than the last in his brilliant hat-trick. He already looks very comfortable at this level.

Manager: Ralph Hasenhuttl (SOU) SOU 2-0 EVE

Masterminded a superb victory against the early-season leaders.
