Trent Alexander-Arnold delivered a talismanic performance for Liverpool in Sunday's incredible 4-3 win over Fulham

The Reds' vice-captain showcased his dead-ball abilities by thundering in a free-kick from 25 yards out, with the ball cannoning off goalkeeper Bernd Leno and into the net.

Then, as Liverpool desperately pushed for a winner late on, it was Alexander-Arnold who produced the moment of magic, volleying in brilliantly from the edge of the box in the 88th minute.

Alan Shearer, the Premier League's all-time top scorer and Hall of Fame inductee, has hailed Alexander-Arnold's impact and selected the Reds star in his Team of the Week, alongside four Newcastle United players.

Shearer's Matchweek 14 Team of the Week

Robert Sanchez (Chelsea)
"He was tremendous in goal against his former side Brighton, producing seven saves in an impressive win."

Kieran Trippier (Newcastle)
"Not only was he outstanding defensively, Trippier was a huge threat going forward and laid the goal on a plate for Anthony Gordon."

James Tarkowski (Everton)
"The captain epitomised everything that was good about Everton's defensive display as he headed, blocked and cleared everything away."

Fabian Schar (Newcastle)
"Made a crucial block to preserve Newcastle's lead. He's been near-faultless under Eddie Howe."

Tino Livramento (Newcastle)
"Despite being out of position, as a right-back playing at left-back, Livramento more than handled Marcus Rashford's threat."

Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)
"Took matters into his own hands with an incredible display. Playing him in midfield takes Liverpool onto another level."

Enzo Fernandez (Chelsea)
"Delivered a proper No 8 performance and showed great character to step up and convert the penalty that ultimately won the match."

Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)
"Imperious once again. Brilliant skill to create the opening for his goal, and wonderful composure to finish it."

Luca Koleosho (Burnley)
"A constant menace and produced wonderful technique for Burnley's fourth goal."

Zeki Amdouni (Burnley)
"Led the line brilliantly and took his goal very well."

Anthony Gordon (Newcastle)
"Although Newcastle don't have many options going forward, Gordon is making sure the goals keep coming."

Manager: Ange Postecoglou (Spurs)
"His side struggled in the first half but Postecoglou's brilliant changes turned the match round for Spurs."
