For the second time this season, Alan Shearer has selected three Newcastle players in his team of the week. He also selected three players for our draw against Manchester City.

This week it’s goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, goal scorer Miguel Almiron, and the surprise of the three is Paul Dummett at left-back. Paul had some issues with his deliveries, but he worked his socks off, getting up and down the left.
Newcastle players have become a steady presence in Alan’s weekly selections since we started our great run at West Ham. In the 8 games since then, we’ve managed 5 wins and the massive draw against Man City.
Though we’ve had the two slip-ups at Aston Villa and Burnley, it’s still been a terrific run. The lads have been able to get the wins despite not always being at their best.
It’s great that they get recognition from a Newcastle icon like Alan Shearer. Hopefully, they’ll keep putting in the displays that are worthy of the accolades.
