A number of fans have hit out at BBC Sport pundit Alan Shearer for not selecting Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul in his Premier League Team of the Week.

The Canaries man put in an inspired display at Carrow Road against Manchester United, who weighed in with 21 shots towards him including 11 on target (BBC Sport).

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:

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.
