Shearer hails Nakamba after fine form continues

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.

Villa’s 2-1 win meant back to back wins for Gerrard since taking over from Dean Smith with Nakamba catching the eye after his arrival at B6.

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.

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.

Magnificent in every department. He was solid defensively and provided some wonderful crosses, including an assist for the opening goal.

Ran the midfield. That is just the kind of performance that Steven Gerrard will be looking for.

With a goal and two assists, this was much more like it from a talented player who has had a quiet spell.

There are no signs of him slowing down after his latest two goals.
