A new season has begun, but Bukayo Saka remains his normal brilliant self. 

The Arsenal winger scored a stunning goal in Saturday's 2-1 win at home to Nottingham Forest, cutting in from the right and whipping the ball into the top-left corner.

As a result, Saka has been named in Alan Shearer's first Team of the Week of the 2023/24 Premier League season.

He has been included alongside three players from Newcastle United and two Manchester City stars.

Shearer's Team of the Week

Bernd Leno (Fulham)
"Made several good saves to keep his clean sheet in Fulham's win at Everton."

Rico Henry (Brentford)
"He was superb on the flank, going up and down all day. He was a constant threat to Spurs."

Joachim Andersen (Crystal Palace)
"More than played his part in helping Palace keep a clean sheet against Sheffield United."

Pervis Estupinan (Brighton)
"Very solid against Luton and fully deserved his excellent assist at the end."

Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)
"A brilliant goal from Arsenal's star player. He has carried on his form from last season."

Sandro Tonali (Newcastle)
"What a debut! He ran the midfield against Villa and looks outstanding in the black and white shirt."

Rodri (Man City)
"Bossed the midfield, made two outstanding tackles and capped a brilliant display with a goal and an assist."

Enzo Fernandez (Chelsea)
"Man of the Match. Liverpool couldn't get anywhere near him."

Anthony Gordon (Newcastle)
"Matty Cash didn't know what day it was!"

Erling Haaland (Man City)
