Alan Shearer has named Newcastle United defender Paul Dummett in his Premier League team of the week.

The Welsh international defender was instrumental in the Magpies 2-2 with Bournemouth on Saturday, and caught the eye with a breathtaking, acrobatic clearance with the game tied at 1-1.

And despite a brace of spectacular goals from Salomon Rondon and Matt Ritchie, the Toon legend opted to go with the defender as his standout United player.

Shearer’s team of the week was posted to the Premier League’s official Twitter account on Monday evening.
