The Swiss star rose from the bench to fire Liverpool to a 3-1 win over Manchester United, while Jesus netted a brace against Everton

Liverpool's man of the moment Xherdan Shaqiri wrote himself into Anfield folklore on Sunday, scoring twice to help the Reds to a crucial 3-1 victory over Manchester United.

The Switzerland international had to make do with a watching brief for much of the match, but scored just three minutes after coming off the bench before ensuring the points remained on Merseyside with his second just seven minutes later. Shaqiri's vital contribution earned him a high 95/100 on the Goal Pressure Index, presented by Sure and powered by OPTA.

Joining Shaqiri in the Goal Pressure Index Team of the Week is Southampton's Danny Ings, whose two goals against Arsenal helped Ralph Hasenhuttl to a win on his home debut in charge of the Saints.

The former Burnley hitman's expert headers took his tally for the season to seven, and it also earned him a score of 94/100 for the former Liverpool man who had just returned from injury!

Spearheading the Team of the Week's attack is Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus, who put Everton to the sword with two fine finishes at the Etihad Stadium.
