Alan Shearer names five Newcastle United and two Arsenal stars in Premier League team of the season

Newcastle players have consistently featured in Shearer’s Premier League team of the weeks since the start of the campaign with Eddie Howe’s side sitting third in the table after 15 matches with just one defeat to their name.

United’s all-time top goalscorer has named five of the club’s players in his team of the season XI so far. Two more than second place Manchester City and three more than leaders Arsenal.

When posting his team of the season via his Instagram account, Shearer included the caption: “You know it makes sense.”
