Chelsea produced another fine performance to triumph 3-0 at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday and go joint-top of the Premier League.
At the heart of their display was centre-back Thiago Silva, who not only scored the opening goal but nullified the threat of Son Heung-min as the Blues extended their unbeaten start to the season.
For Alan Shearer, the Premier League's all-time record goalscorer and Hall of Fame inductee, that London derby victory earned the Brazilian, along with three of his Chelsea team-mates, a place in his Matchweek 5 Team of the Week.
