Shearer Team of the Week Matchweek 6

Emiliano Martinez (Aston Villa)
“Three outstanding saves that proved pivotal in the win at Chelsea.”

Kieran Trippier (Newcastle)
“A masterclass in set-piece and open-play delivery. Three assists and another excellent performance.”

James Tarkowski (Everton)
“The centre-back was a menace in Brentford’s box, providing a goal and an assist, while he was also a commanding presence in defence.”

Jonny Evans (Man Utd)
“What a return to the Man Utd side! A terrific assist for Bruno Fernandes and was a cool head at the back.”

Sven Botman (Newcastle)
“Scored his first Premier League goal and didn’t give Sheff Utd a sniff.”

Abdoulaye Doucoure (Everton)
“His goal provided Everton with the perfect start and he was unlucky not to score a second when he hit the crossbar.”

Yves Bissouma (Spurs)
“He was easily the most impressive midfielder in the north London derby. Has been transformed under Ange Postecoglou.”

Phil Foden (Man City)
“Took his goal superbly and put in a big shift after Man City were reduced to 10 men.”

Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton)
“What an impact! Scored within 16 seconds of coming on and wrapped up the victory with a nice header.”

Anthony Gordon (Newcastle)
“He provided a real spark when he came on and got on the scoresheet with a fantastic finish.”

Son Heung-min (Spurs)
“The movement for his first goal was sensational, and he showed great composure for his second.”

Manager: Eddie Howe (Newcastle)
“What can you say! Masterminded a historic victory at Bramall Lane.”
