Premier League's record goalscorer hails Everton's No 1 as he names his best XI for Matchweek 35

Few gave relegation-embattled Everton much hope of beating Chelsea on Sunday, but they earned three crucial points in the fight to stay up thanks to a 1-0 win over the third-placed Londoners.

That win came in no small part thanks to a goalkeeping performance by Jordan Pickford that Premier League Hall of Fame inductee Alan Shearer describes as "extraordinary".

Pickford made five key interventions to keep out Thomas Tuchel's side, including a stop that Shearer says might be "the save of the season."

Jordan Pickford (EVE)
"A hero in goal. Extraordinary. Made a string of stunning stops to secure the vital win over Chelsea, including a contender for save of the season."

Joao Cancelo (MCI)
"Gave another tireless performance at both ends of the pitch as Manchester City maintained their title push with a convincing 4-0 victory."

Rob Holding (ARS)
"His first Premier League goal, and how important it proved. Arsenal are starting to get goals from all around the team."

Cristian Romero (TOT)
"His influential display was typified by two huge tackles that led to Son Heung-min's first goal. Helped turn the tide of the match Spurs' way."

Marc Cucurella (BHA)
"He is such a great signing by Graham Potter. A clean sheet and another solid display."

Jack Cork (BUR)
"Without a goal for over three years, what a time to pick to break into the box and score the crucial equaliser."

Phil Foden (MCI)
"A class act. Delivered two assists and showed sublime control throughout."

Naby Keita (LIV)
"Popped up with the all-important winner to justify his selection as Jurgen Klopp rotated his team."

Demarai Gray (EVE)
"A menace throughout and was unlucky not to add a goal to his assist."

Danny Ings (AVL)
"Made an instant impact from the bench, setting up the equaliser, hitting the post and then scoring Villa's second."

Son Heung-min (TOT)
"Unplayable. Directly involved in all three goals, scoring with two brilliant strikes. He has Mohamed Salah looking over his shoulder in the Golden Boot race."

Manager: Mikel Arteta (ARS)
"Arsenal needed to win ugly and, under pressure in the top-four race against a deep-lying West Ham side, they managed to do just that."
