When it comes to performing in the Premier League age is no barrier for Glenn Murray, who has drawn praise from Alan Shearer for his two-goal display against Fulham.

The Brighton & Hove Albion striker scored both goals as his side rallied from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with the Cottagers, and Shearer says the 34-year-old is still going strong.

The Premier League's all-time leading goalscorer selected Murray in his Matchweek 4 selection.
