The PL's all-time leading goalscorer has named his Team of the Week for the opening weekend

Alan Shearer selects his Premier League Matchweek 1 Team of the Week. 

Alisson (Liverpool)

Enjoyed a relatively easy Premier League debut by keeping a clean sheet against West Ham United. Tougher tests to come.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)

Involved in the opening goal and could have scored himself from a free-kick. Did well defensively against the lively Felipe Anderson.

John Stones (Man City)

Another typically calm and assured performance from the Manchester City centre-back.

Aymeric Laporte (Man City)

Helped City make a perfect start to their defence of the title. Could have scored but for a brilliant save from Petr Cech.

Marcos Alonso (Chelsea)

Offered an attacking threat all afternoon for Chelsea, winning a penalty which Jorginho scored and also hit the bar.

Naby Keita (Liverpool)

Showed energy and skill in a brilliant Premier League debut. Drove Liverpool forward.

Ruben Neves (Wolves)

The Wolves star looked totally at home on his Premier League debut. Scored a brilliant free-kick and displayed a wonderful array of passing.

N'Golo Kante (Chelsea)

Maurizio Sarri's formation allowed him to play further forward and he thrived, scoring once and could have had another.

Richarlison (Everton)

Under pressure to deliver following his large transfer fee but responded in style with two brilliant goals for Everton.

Sadio Mane (Liverpool)

Started this season where he left off last year. Two goals in another eye-catching performance.

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

One-season wonder? No chance. Only took him 19 minutes to get back into the groove.

Manager: Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool)

His team played with energy to record a great win on the opening weekend of the season.
