Having twice challenged for the Premier League title in the last couple of seasons Spurs were expected to go even better and possibly win it this term.
But they have struggled and are a mammoth 21 points off Manchester City at the halfway stage down in fifth.
Chelsea won the league quite comfortably in the end last season while Pep Guardiola's City are playing some of the best football ever seen in the English top flight.
There was also no room for any Liverpool players despite the form of the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho.
"I’m going for the Tottenham pairing of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld (in defence)," Shearer told Coral.
"These two centre halves have been excellent for Spurs and were one of the key reasons why their side had such an excellent defensive record last season. They also both play in a back three so if this was a real line up, they’d know the system well.
"My first wing back is Kieran Trippier. He has been a huge plus for Tottenham. And the reason is simple – nobody has said that Spurs have missed Kyle Walker.
"When you sell a player for £50 million, you normally have a huge void to fill, but Spurs got a massive price for Walker and they knew they had a player they trusted to fill his shoes.
"Leading the line it has to be Harry Kane. He has scored more goals than anyone else in the Premier League in 2017. And of even more interest to me, (he needs one goal) to break my record for goals in a calendar year.
"They play Southampton next, and I am hoping he does not take my record! Away from that though, he is the complete centre-forward, good in the air and on the deck and most importantly of all, a goalscorer."
