Terrific away wins by Fulham, Leeds United and Wolverhampton Wanderers mean that their players dominate Alan Shearer's Team of the Week. 

In only his second match after returning from injury, Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips helped dictate proceedings against Everton as his side won at Goodison Park for the first time in the Premier League.

Shearer, the Premier League's all-time leading goalscorer, praised Phillips' range of passing in what he described as a complete performance from the England international.
