Alan Shearer names NUFC’s unsung hero in his Premier League Team of the Week

Alan Shearer has named Martin Dubravka in his Premier League Team of the Week – a well deserved reward for the Slovakian’s brilliant form of late.

Jonjo Shelvey, Federico Fernandez, Jetro Willems and Allan Saint-Maximin have all shares the headlines in recent weeks, all playing big roles in our draw against Man City and wins over Sheffield United and Southampton, but Dubravka has been our unsung hero for me.

Without his key save to deny Sterling late on, his first half masterclass at Bramall Lane and his double-save to keep out Redmond on Sunday, we would’ve come out of our last few games with a couple of points – not 7.

Here’s Shearer’s Team of the Week after the latest round of Premier League results over the weekend:

His goal wasn’t peppered on Sunday, with Southampton failing to create a huge amount of chances, however he stepped up and made vital saves whenever he was called upon.

That’s been a theme in recent weeks, with him stepping up to the plate in key moments on a regular basis – and that’s all you can ask for from your number one.

Keep this form up and we may have a few clubs knocking on our door in the new year!
