Huddersfield Town’s 2-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers came courtesy of a brace from Aaron Mooy, but Alan Shearer believes the Terriers' hero was Philip Billing at Molineux.

Billing’s standout moment was at 1-0, when the Huddersfield midfielder stretched his long frame to hook a goalbound header from Raul Jimenez just millimetres before it crossed the goalline.

"Billing gave a towering display," said Shearer, who selected the 22-year-old in his Team of the Week.
