Premier League Champion says Brazilian midfielder has star quality to light up West Ham's season

Alan Shearer says that in Felipe Anderson, West Ham United fans have found a shining star to be proud of.

The Brazilian playmaker scored his first Premier League goal in stylish fashion on Saturday, producing a skilful backflick that set the Hammers on their way to a memorable 3-1 win over Manchester United.

And Shearer, who includes West Ham's No 8 in his Best XI for Matchweek 7, says Anderson's growing influence is beginning to tell on a Hammers side who have earned seven points from their last three matches.

"The summer signing scored a wonderful goal against Man Utd," he says of Anderson. "He is showing the star quality that will get West Ham fans off their seats."
