West Ham United won against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park on Saturday.
Diop played well for West Ham in their 3-0 win against Newcastle away from home at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
The 21-year-old central defender was a rock at the back, kept West Bromwich Albion-owned striker Salomon Rondon, and showed his class once again.
According to WhoScored, the France Under-21 international centre-back took one shot, had a pass accuracy of 77.3%, won four headers, and made six tackles, five clearances and one block, and took one shot.
Newcastle legend Shearer, who now works a pundit for BBC Sport, was impressed with the performance produced by Diop, who joined West Ham from Toulouse in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £22 million.
