Alan Shearer says Marvelous Nakamba ran the midfield against Crystal Palace as he picked the Aston Villa man in his Premier League team of the week.
After an impressive performance against Brighton in Steven Gerrard’s first game in charge, the Zimbabwe international followed it up with another classy display in the victory over Palace at the weekend.
And Shearer was full of praise for the midfielder as he picked his best 11 from the fixtures this weekend.
Here is his team below.
Aaron Ramsdale (ARS)
He made a brilliant save from Jonjo Shelvey at 0-0, a big moment in the match.
Tariq Lamptey (BHA)
A lively display from the full-back, who ran Leeds United ragged and created several excellent chances.
Virgil van Dijk (LIV)
Strong in every department, scoring a well-taken volley and keeping a clean sheet against his former side.
Thiago Silva (CHE)
He makes defending look easy at times, and this was one of those matches. Superb again.
Andrew Robertson (LIV)
Magnificent in every department. He was solid defensively and provided some wonderful crosses, including an assist for the opening goal.

John McGinn (AVL)
He was always a threat so it was no surprise when he popped up with his decisive goal.
Marvelous Nakamba (AVL)
Ran the midfield. That is just the kind of performance that Steven Gerrard will be looking for.
James Maddison (LEI)
With a goal and two assists, this was much more like it from a talented player who has had a quiet spell.
Bukayo Saka (ARS)
He gave Newcastle United’s defence a torrid time and scored a very good goal before going off injured.
Jamie Vardy (LEI)
There are no signs of him slowing down after his latest two goals.
