Manchester City's 12-match winning run in the Premier League came to an end with a 1-1 draw at Southampton on Saturday, and Alan Shearer has hailed the display of Mohammed Salisu against the leaders.
Shearer was hugely impressed by the way the Southampton centre-back nullified the threat of a Man City attack featuring the in-form Kevin De Bruyne.
Salisu is one of two Saints players selected by Shearer, the Premier League's record goalscorer and a Hall of Fame inductee, in his Team of the Week.
