Following the conclusion of all the fixtures in matchday 26 in the Premier League, Alan Shearer took to Instagram to share his Team of the week which included players from both Liverpool and Everton, who recorded 1-0 and 3-1 wins respectively.
There were also two places for Manchester United defensive pairing Harry Maguire and Eric Bailly, who was making his return to the starting XI following a lengthy injury which has left him sidelined for the entirety of the season so far.
According to the regular BBC Sport pundit, Andy Robertson and Jordan Henderson were the outstanding performers for Liverpool in the left-back and central midfield positions respectively.
Up front, the Everton duo of Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin got a shout as well for their displays for the Toffees as they both got on the scoresheet against Crystal Palace before their winter break got underway.
As a whole, Merseyside can boast four players in Shearer’s side, while north London represented a close regional rival with Son Heung-min, Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pep all selected.
