Alan Shearer shows incredible bias in his team of the week – leaving out Spurs stars

Tottenham Hotspur made it three wins from the past three games as they saw off Newcastle 1-0 at Wembley at the weekend.

This followed 2-1 wins against both Fulham and Watford in the previous week, sending Spurs just five points off the League leaders Liverpool.

Tottenham left it late once again against Newcastle, with Son finally breaking the deadlock in the 83rd minute.

Spurs had bossed possession throughout the 90 minutes, as well as creating the most chances and shots on goal.

It would take even the most biased fan to claim that Spurs didn’t deserve to win the game.

There were some fantastic performances from the likes of Davinson Sanchez; who marked Rondon out the game through large parts of the 90, Harry Winks; who bossed the midfield, and Sonny; who won the game.

Despite this, when picking his team of the week, ex-Newcastle striker Alan Shearer left out every single Spurs star, instead lumping for Newcastle defender Jamal Lascelles.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Shearer, like Lawrenson, has never given Spurs the credit they really deserve over the
    past 4 seasons. But that’s OK. Who cares which pundit picks what team, whether weekly,
    monthly, or yearly. I’m quite happy for us to be constantly written off by those who are
    not important. What counts is what our club does (Levy, Poch, the squad and the fans)!
    There is a great future for Spurs (once again) on the horizon, and right now everyone
    can keep us under the radar, which is where I hope we remain. That way, we may well shake
    up a lot of people and genuinely surprise ‘experts’ and many others by mid May.

  2. Is that a pun? Shearer’s team of the ‘weak’ (ie not strong) because there are no Spurs players in it?
    No, I think you meant ‘week’ didn’t you.
