Alan Shearer rewards Allan Saint-Maximin for stunning display in 3-1 win vs Burnley

Alan Shearer has named Allan Saint-Maximin in his Premier League Team of the Week.

The Frenchman put in a man of the match performance in our commanding 3-1 win against Burnley – scoring a superb solo opener before turning provider to Callum Wilson for our second goal of the game.

His selection sees the winger chosen alongside the likes of Harry Kane and Hueng-Min Son, with Aston Villa duo Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins also in the side following their shock 7-2 battering of champions Liverpool!

Here the team that Shearer has selected for week four:

A well deserved reward for ASM after a stunning display – although there’s no place for Callum Wilson, despite his two goals and assist on Saturday night.

Keeping him fit this season really could be key to any success we’ll have, with him the one player in our side who’s able to make something happen from absolutely nothing.

Not only that, his assist for Callum Wilson was one of the best pieces of play across the Premier League all weekend – something that’ll leave our new £20m licking his lips if he can get that sort of quality service on a more consistent basis!
