And while most weeks see Shearer select a host of different players from different teams, this week has thrown something a bit different up.


After winning 4-0 at Leicester City on Thursday, Shearer has opted to select four Liverpool stars.

Virgil Van Dijk, Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold dominate the back four. Upfront, Shearer has selected Roberto Firmino, with the Brazilian putting on a fine display at the King Power.

However, it was Alexander-Arnold who was the star man. He set up three goals before scoring the fourth himself to cement himself as one of the nation’s top talents.

‘TAA’, as he is known to fans, will now be looking to kick on and cement himself as England’s right-back for Euro 2020.

Shearer also picked Jurgen Klopp as his manager of the week, making it five Reds stars in total.

It’s nothing new to see Liverpool players selected in teams of the week. Indeed, when a team is unbeaten and top of the league as they are, it’s expected.

But the manner in their win this week was something of a message to the rest of world football. This Liverpool team are here to stay under Jurgen Klopp and, on their day, they’ll dismantle any team.

Leicester are second in the Premier League. Liverpool made them look ordinary at times.

TBR View

It was a frightening performance from Liverpool this past week, it really was. The Reds dominated from the off and the result never looked in doubt one bit.

There is a real sense this team can go unbeaten all season. Goals are flowing, and Van Dijk is controlling things from the back.

With the Premier League title more or less sewn up already, the Reds could well be wise to concentrate on trying to match Arsenal’s invincibles.
