Shearer picks FOUR Hammers in Team of the Week!

Alan Shearer was clearly impressed by the Hammers’ 2-1 win over Spurs on Sunday as he’s named four Irons in his Premier League Team of the Week!

The Newcastle United legend always picks a selection after every round of fixtures.

And he’s named four Irons stars in his XI this week: defender Craig Dawson, midfielders Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek, and attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard.

Shearer has waxed lyrical over the four stars, with the win moving the Irons firmly into top four contention.

Making his selections, he claimed that Dawson was “superb” at the back, with Rice touted as a genuinely “relentless” presence in the centre of midfield.
