Alan Shearer has selected three Newcastle players for his Team of the Week. They are goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, center-back Federico Fernandez, and midfielder Jonjo Shelvey. Hey, where’s Jetro Willems? 🙂
This is the Team of the Week that Alan has selected.

It’s quite rare that any Newcastle players make Alan’s team, let alone three. Though Allan Saint-Maximin was selected by Shearer for his performance at West Ham. Alan also selected Steve Bruce as the top manager that week.
Fede Fernandez was in BBC football analyst Garth Crooks’s Team of the Week for his performance against Bournemouth.
However, both of those selections were for wins. Shearer has picked this Newcastle trio after a well-deserved draw.
It took a total team effort to secure the unexpected point this Saturday. Many Magpies played out of their skin to come back twice after going down a goal against the defending champions. However, these three, along with Jetro Willems, did stand out a little more than the rest.
All three of these players were high in our poll for Man of the Match this weekend. The only exclusion was left-back Jetro Willems, who finished third in our poll which was won by Martin Dubravka.
All three are also up for selection in our poll for November’s player of the month.
