The Norwich City keeper kept out two penalties at the weekend for the Carrow Road side.
Krul's most notable contributions in the game were keeping out two penalties, thwarting Marcus Rashford and then Anthony Martial from the spot.
Even though Norwich shipped three to the Red Devils, the first goal came after a stunning reaction save from Martial at point-blank range, while the second came about as Rashford was left in acres of space by the Canaries defence.
However, Shearer opted for Tottenham's Paulo Gazzaniga in his XI and numerous fans were not impressed with the Premier League legend's selection, making their feelings known on social media:

How is Krul not in this?— Joel Cooper (@J_T_Cooper) 28 October 2019
gazzaniga was outstanding this week. hope to see him for permanent plays. in terms of performance, gazzaniga takes it all. but in terms of team of the week, i'd rather take krul. 2 penalty saves in one match is rare.— M.A.R. (@ammarnaq) 28 October 2019
Krul needs a mention— Medien Shofola (@MShofola) 28 October 2019
Onel Hernandez scored a consolation goal for the hosts in the 88th minute but the 3-1 loss meant that Norwich remain second bottom in the Premier League table.
Up next for Daniel Farke's side is the trip to Brighton at the weekend.
