The Brazilian striker produced a brilliant brace in Saturday's impressive 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur, taking his tally to seven goals in his last seven Premier League appearances as the Cottagers earned their third win in four matches.

Because of that clinical display, Muniz has earned a place in the Team of the Week chosen by the Premier League's record goalscorer Alan Shearer

Alan Shearer's MW29 Team of the Week

Arijanet Muric (Burnley)
"A Premier League debut to remember. He did so well to prevent an own goal and made several other crucial saves."

Timothy Castagne (Fulham)
"Delivered a cross that Sasa Lukic couldn't miss from and nearly capped off a brilliant display with a goal."

Teden Mengi (Luton Town)
"If it wasn't for his incredible goalline clearance to deny Anthony Elanga, Luton wouldn't have had the chance to salvage a point."

Antonee Robinson (Fulham)
"Kept Dejan Kulusevski quiet all evening, produced an assist and could have got another. An excellent performance at left-back."

Luke Berry (Luton Town)
"What a way to get your first Premier League goal! He's kept his side fighting for safety with his late equaliser, and it's brilliant that he's now scored in all four divisions."

Sasa Lukic (Fulham)
"Such an underrated player for Fulham. He controlled the midfield superbly and took his goal so well." 

Nicolo Zaniolo (Aston Villa)
"Excellent impact when he was brought on by Unai Emery, scoring an equaliser that could prove vital for Villa in the top-four race."

Morgan Gibbs-White (Nottingham Forest)
"He will play a huge part if Forest are to stay up this season. Laid the ball on a plate for Chris Wood with a fantastic cross."

David Datro Fofana (Burnley)
"Despite missing a couple of big chances, he kept looking for the next one and took his goal really well."

Rodrigo Muniz (Fulham)
"Simply unplayable. He's really stepped up for Fulham in recent weeks to give them a chance of qualifying for Europe."

Michail Antonio (West Ham United)
"Pressed really well from the front, gave West Ham a focal point and scored an excellent diving header. Unlucky not to have added another goal too as it went in off his arm."

Manager: Marco Silva (Fulham)
"Defying expectations this season and once again showed his excellent tactical skills to mastermind a victory over Spurs."
