PL's record goalscorer names Brazilian in his Team of the Week after starring in win at Chelsea

West Bromwich Albion may still have plenty to do to avoid relegation, but in Matheus Pereira they have a player who could inspire a great escape.

The Brazilian playmaker showed his quality at Chelsea on Saturday, scoring two goals and setting up two more as West Brom triumphed 5-2, ending the weekend eight points from safety with eight matches left.

For Alan Shearer, the Premier League's all-time leading goalscorer, Pereira's performance will give the Baggies real belief, and he has named the 24-year-old in his Team of the Week.
