For Alan Shearer, the clinical finishing of Son Heung-min was the major difference between the sides as Tottenham Hotspur triumphed 4-0 at Aston Villa.

Villa had eight shots on target but were unable to score, while Spurs had five efforts on target and found the net with all but one.

That was mostly thanks to hat-trick hero Son, who delivered a "perfect performance" in the eyes of Shearer.

The Premier League's record goalscorer has named the Spurs star in his Team of the Week, along with four of the players who led Chelsea to a 6-0 victory at Southampton.

Jordan Pickford (EVE)
"He made several important saves in a crucial win over Manchester United."

Cristian Romero (TOT)
"Defended on the front foot, throwing himself at everything as Spurs weathered a storm in the first half and then eased to a commanding win."

Lewis Dunk (BHA)
"Solid at the back, giving Arsenal's forwards a frustrating afternoon in Brighton's victory at Emirates Stadium."

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (CHE)
"Deputising for Reece James, he was very impressive in the right wing-back role."

Marcos Alonso (CHE)
"He set the tone for the day with his early opener and was superb throughout."

Bruno Guimaraes (NEW)
"In his first start at St James' Park, he was the best player on the pitch as Newcastle beat Wolves."

Enock Mwepu (BHA)
"Outstanding in everything he did, laying on the opening goal with a smart cutback before finishing off a brilliant team move with a great finish."

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (LEI)
"His assist was brilliant, and his stunning goal from the edge of the box was even better."

Mason Mount (CHE)
"He ran the show, setting up the opening goal and then scoring twice himself."

Timo Werner (CHE)
"Southampton couldn’t handle him. He was unlucky to only get two goals, hitting the woodwork three times."

Son Heung-min (TOT)
"Three shots on target. Three goals. It was a perfect performance in a match where clinical finishing was the difference."

Manager: Thomas Tuchel (CHE)
"After two morale-sapping defeats in the previous seven days, the German transformed the mood with this emphatic victory."
