Conor Gallagher, Shearer's MW3 Team of the Week

Premier League's all-time leading scorer names Crystal Palace star in his Matchweek 3 best XI

Few people expected Crystal Palace to come away with a point from their trip to an in-form West Ham United side, but thanks to an inspirational display by Conor Gallagher, the Eagles were unlucky not to emerge with a victory.

Gallagher impressed while on loan at West Bromwich Albion from Chelsea last season and the midfielder appears to be growing in stature this season, according to Alan Shearer.

Given a free role by Palace managerย Patrick Vieira, the 21-year-old loanee scored two superbly taken goals to earn Palace a thrilling 2-2 draw with the league leaders and cement a place for himself in Hall of Fame inductee Shearer's Matchweek 3 Team of the Week.

The Spaniard kept Manchester United in the match with a fine display including a double-save to remember against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
