Alan Shearer has named both Jamaal Lascelles and Allan Saint-Maximin in his Team of the Week for last weekend’s Premier League fixtures.

Both Jamaal and Allan were outstanding in our 1-0 win at Southampton on Saturday. The captain helped marshall a defense that kept a second clean sheet in a row in the Premier League.
Allan, of course, willed Newcastle to victory with his individual effort for the goal. Shearer hasn’t picked a Newcastle player in his team of the week since our 1-1 draw at Wolves in January when he selected both Martin Dubravka and Miguel Almiron.
There hasn’t been much to celebrate with our league performances of late. But hopefully, we’ve turned a corner with the new formation and can continue to pick up some wins in our final nine games.
