Clarets captain earns place in Matchweek 19 Team of the Week after outstanding display at Anfield

A captain's performance from Ben Mee was pivotal to Burnley ending Liverpool's 68-match unbeaten home run in the Premier League. 

While Ashley Barnes stole the headlines with the first winning goal as an opposition player at Anfield since April 2017, Premier League Champion Alan Shearer was just as impressed with Burnley's defence in their 1-0 win.

Indeed, Mee features alongside goalkeeper Nick Pope in Shearer's Matchweek 19 Team of the Week.
