Alan Shearer has shared his full praise for Southampton players Kyle Walker-Peters and Mohammed Salisu following the club’s 1 – 1 draw with Manchester City at the weekend.

The pundit has included the Saints duo in his Premier League Team of The Week as he was impressed by their displays against the rivals.

“His first Premier League goal was a great one, and he had to defend very well in the second half against Man City,” Shearer said about Walker-Peters on Premier League Official Website. 

On Salisou, he added: “Man of the match as Southampton stopped the leaders’ long winning run. He just blocked everything.”
