Shearer names ‘brilliant’ Hammer in TOTW

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.
