West Ham forward makes PL Champion's Team of the Week after display at Everton

There is no higher a compliment than for Alan Shearer to single out a player for a "real centre-forward's performance".

That is how the league's all-time leading goalscorer described Marko Arnautovic's role in West Ham United's 3-1 win at Everton, the Hammers' first Premier League victory of the season.  

"He scored a very good goal and provided an assist when his team needed it most," says Shearer of Arnautovic, who features in his Matchweek 5 selection.

Also in the XI is West Ham's Andriy Yarmolenko, whose two goals at Goodison Park did not surprise the Premier League Champion, who has been tipping the Ukrainian as a player to watch this season. 

Shearer's Team of the Week
David De Gea (MUN) | WAT 1-2 MUN

The Spaniard made two excellent saves, including one in the last minute to deny Watford a point.

Matt Doherty (WOL) | WOL 1-0 BUR

The right-back was solid and provided a great assist.

Virgil van Dijk (LIV) | TOT 1-2 LIV

The Dutchman was a rock at the back and didn't give Harry Kane a kick.

Aymeric Laporte (MCI) | MCI 3-0 FUL

He was in cruise control all game for Manchester City.

Andrew Robertson (LIV)TOT 1-2 LIV

The Scot was very good again and part of a very impressive Liverpool rearguard.

Andriy Yarmolenko (WHU) | EVE 1-3 WHU

Two goals on his first start. I'm surprised it has taken so long (I tipped him as one to watch!!!)🤣.

James Milner (LIV)TOT 1-2 LIV

The old man just keeps on going. Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele couldn’t live with him. He controlled the middle of the park.

Fernandinho (MCI) | MCI 3-0 FUL

The Brazilian absolutely bossed the midfield for City.

Ryan Fraser (BOU) | BOU 4-2 LEI

Two goals, an assist and three goals for the season already. He was a constant threat with his pace and energy.

Eden Hazard (CHE) | CHE 4-1 CAR

A hat-trick and a stunning performance in a No 10 role. No talk of him being tired after a World Cup!!

Marko Arnautovic (WHU) | EVE 1-3 WHU

A real centre-forward's performance. He scored a very good goal and provided an assist when his team needed it most. Led the line with such authority. 

Manager: Jurgen Klopp (LIV) | TOT 1-2 LIV

After dominating Spurs at Wembley, he deserves five out of five!
