League's record goalscorer hails Man Utd playmaker as he names his best XI from Matchweek 6

There were several brilliant displays on show in the blockbuster contest at Old Trafford between Manchester United and Arsenal, but none more so than from Christian Eriksen.

In the hosts' 3-1 win, the Dane supplied an assist for Marcus Rashford's second goal, and was heavily involved in the build-up for the first. 

With that performance, Premier League record goalscorer and Hall of Fame inductee Alan Shearer named Eriksen in his Team of the Week alongside two other Man Utd players.

Jordan Pickford (EVE)
“He made several superb saves to frustrate Liverpool.”

Nathan Patterson (EVE)
“Immense all game in everything he did, both when defending and going forward.”  

Lisandro Martinez (MUN)
“Solid at the back. He has helped to transform Manchester United’s defence.”

Max Kilman (WOL)
“A very positive showing. He played a key role in keeping Southampton out.”

“A threat throughout and looks very comfortable in that team now.”
