Gomez deserves England call, says Shearer

28 Aug 2018
Liverpool v Brighton & Hove Albion

Four players from Liverpool, three from Spurs and a Wolves pair make Alan Shearer's Matchweek 3 selection

After putting on another impressive display at the weekend, Alan Shearer believes it is time Joe Gomez received international recognition.

Gomez helped the Reds maintain their perfect start to the season and keep a third successive clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion.

So secure were Liverpool at the back that Shearer opted for three of their defenders in his Matchweek 3 selection, including the impressive 21-year-old, who has been capped three times.

"Gomez put on another powerful display against Brighton," says Shearer. "He should now earn a call-up to the England squad."

Shearer's Team of the Week
Rui Patricio (WOL) | WOL 1-1 MCI

He made a wonder save from Raheem Sterling and another to keep Gabriel Jesus out to deny the champions a win.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) | LIV 1-0 BHA

He was solid at the back and such an attacking force down the right.

Toby Alderweireld (TOT) | MUN 0-3 TOT

A rock at the back for Spurs. I’m sure Jose Mourinho would have wanted him in his team.

Joe Gomez (LIV) | LIV 1-0 BHA

He put on another powerful defensive display against Brighton. He should now earn a call-up to the England squad.

Andrew Robertson (LIV) | LIV 1-0 BHA

In a back four that has yet to concede a goal this season, this was another assured performance. 

James Milner (LIV) | LIV 1-0 BHA

Whether he's playing in midfield or anywhere else on the pitch, you know what you get with him. Superb again.

Joao Moutinho (WOL) | WOL 1-1 MCI

Up against David Silva, Fernandinho and Ilkay Gundogan, the Portuguese midfielder looked very comfortable against City. He was brilliant.

Roberto Pereyra (WAT) | WAT 2-1 CRY

Was a constant threat for Watford going forward, scored a superb goal and could have had another.

Lucas Moura (TOT) | MUN 0-3 TOT

Dazzling all night, he lit up Old Trafford with his great pace and sublime finishes for his goals.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (FUL) | FUL 4-2 BUR

Two very good headers, unlucky hitting the post for a hat-trick and bullied the Burnley defenders.

Harry Kane (TOT) | MUN 0-3 TOT

Deadly as usual. He scored his first goal in August last week and his first goal at Old Trafford this week! A brilliant header with precision and power to get his team going.

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino (TOT) | MUN 0-3 TOT

A very impressive achievement to win 3-0 at Old Trafford.
