Alan Shearer has included Leeds United duo Stuart Dallas and Patrick Bamford in his Premier League Team of the Week.

The Whites were superb on Friday evening as they cruised to a 3-0 victory against Aston Villa, ending their 100% record.

Bamford scored his first hat-trick for the club and thanked Marcelo Bielsa for showing faith in him unlike any of his previous managers.

Shearer claimed that Bamford was already looking like a Premier League standard striker, and was blown away by his three finishes.

“What do I need to say? Each goal was better than the last in his brilliant hat-trick. He already looks very comfortable at this level,” he told the official Premier League website.

Every Leeds player could have been selected in Shearer’s team of the week alongside Bamford, but he went for Dallas after the clean-sheet.

“Won his duels to help his side keep a clean sheet and contributed to a succession of passing moves at the other end in a solid shift at right-back.”

Bamford has received all the plaudits for his performance, and rightly so, he did outscore every single team in match week six single-handedly.

We expected him to be in every Team of the Week, and looking at Dallas’ performance, he definitely deserved it too.

The Northern Irish international was once again asked to switch position to the right-hand side and was superb in his defensive work.

Dallas was tasked with keeping Jack Grealish quiet, and apart from two moments, he did that job perfectly at Villa Park.

He made six interceptions and also had two shots according to WyScout, as he was a constant thorn in the side of Villa all evening.
