Jean-Philippe Mateta produced an outstanding centre-forward display in Crystal Palace's impressive 5-2 victory over West Ham United on Sunday.

The French centre-forward led the line superbly and scored two outstanding goals as the Eagles moved further away from the relegation zone.

That wonderful display in front of goal caught the eye of Alan Shearer, the Premier League's record goalscorer and Hall of Fame inductee, who has named Mateta in his Team of the Week, along with team-mate Eberechi Eze.
