Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has included Liverpool forward Sadio Mane and Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka in his Premier League Team of the Week for match week two.

Mane played a significant role to help Liverpool clinch a 2-1 victory over his former club Southampton on Saturday.

The Senegal international opened the scoring in the encounter with a magical strike from the edge of the box before setting up Roberto Firmino for his side’s second goal to render Danny Ings’ effort a mere consolation.

The victory helped Jurgen Klopp’s men continue their winning ways following their opening league win against Norwich City.

Wan-Bissaka has been turning heads since teaming up with Manchester United from Crystal Palace in the summer.

The youngster delivered an impressive defensive display in his side’s 1-1 stalemate with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday.

The duo has been picked among the best 11 players who shone in the week under review by the former Newcastle United marksman, while Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder was named as the coach of the side.

Wan-Bissaka was one of the league's best tacklers last term and will hope to continue his impressive displays this season.
