Premier League's record goalscorer picks Scot among three Arsenal players in his Team of the Week

It may have been a cold, snowy day at The Hawthorns on Saturday but Arsenal were on red-hot form in their 4-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

Alan Shearer was so impressed that he has named three Gunners players in a four-man midfield for his Team of the Week.

The Premier League's all-time leading goalscorer has reserved special for Kieran Tierney, who scored one goal and set up another from left-back.

David De Gea (MUN) MUN 2-1 AVL

"He made several good saves as Manchester United edged a high-quality contest."

Eric Bailly (MUN) MUN 2-1 AVL

"An excellent match, including a magnificent block to deny Keinan Davis at the end."

John Stones (MCI) CHE 1-3 MCI

"Once again, he didn't put a foot wrong. Timo Werner didn't get a kick."

Jack Stephens (SOU) SOU 1-0 LIV

"Thanks to him Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino were very quiet."

Bukayo Saka (ARS) WBA 0-4 ARS

"A superb winger's performance. He was whipping balls in for fun and got himself into the six-yard box to finish off a brilliant team goal."

Emile Smith Rowe (ARS) WBA 0-4 ARS

"The 20-year-old provided energy, skill and composure, setting up Saka's goal in the move of the match."

Ilkay Gundoganย (MCI) CHE 1-3 MCI

"No one at Chelsea could get near him, he was that good. With three goals in four matches, he is growing in importance."

Kieran Tierneyย (ARS) WBA 0-4 ARS

"He provided everything you want from a modern full-back, scoring a brilliant goal and setting up another while also helping his team keep a clean sheet."

Kevin De Bruyneย (MCI) CHE 1-3 MCI

"He showed he can play anywhere by leading the attack and getting a goal and an assist."

Harry Kane (TOT) TOT 3-0 LEE

"Outstanding again with his goal and assist. His low cross for Son Heung-min's goal was inch-perfect."

Danny Ingsย ย (SOU)ย SOU 1-0 LIV

"Led the line brilliantly and won the match with a superb early finish."

Manager: Ralph Hasenhuttlย (SOU) SOU 1-0 LIV

"This was no smash and grab, Southampton fully deserved their win over Liverpool. Hasenhuttl has built a formidable team that are solid at the back, hard-working in the middle and exciting going forward."
