Alan Shearer has named Craig Dawson in his Premier League Team of the Week after his display in the Hammers’ win over Leeds!
The Newcastle legend picks a team every week after the weekend’s fixtures.
He has named just one Hammer in his XI this week, plumping for Dawson after yet another towering performance.
The centre-back capped a superb defensive display with a thumping header to make it 2-0 after Aaron Cresswell whipped in a teasing corner.
That was the centre-back’s third goal of the season and he also made a stunning clearance to deny Leeds a way back into the game.
Speaking of the veteran centre-back, Shearer said: “Brilliant again, scoring his third goal of the season and making a superb goalline clearance.”
Four Fulham players make the team as well after their win over Liverpool – Alphonse Areola, Joachim Andersen, Mario Lemina and Ademola Lookman – along with three Manchester United players following their win over Manchester City: Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw, and Scott McTominay. Gareth Bale and Harry Kane make it in after Spurs beat Crystal Palace 4-1, along with Chelsea’s Kai Havertz after they beat Everton.
