The Aston Villa captain was superb as Dean Smith's charges brought a point back to Villa Park from Man United.
The Villa Park captain put in an inspired display as Dean Smith's charges held Manchester United to a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Grealish now has three goals and two assists from last five games for Villa, and against the Red Devils, weighed in with a simply sensational curling effort to open the scoring.
The 24-year-old remained a class above for the whole game, coming close to making it 2-1 before Victor Lindelof's header, with Tyrone Mings cancelling that out soon after for a share of the spoils.
Despite the rave reviews sent his way after the game, Shearer opted not to include Grealish in his XI, opting instead for Southampton's James Ward-Prowse, Newcastle United's Jonjo Shelvey and Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne in his midfield.
Up front, meanwhile, he went for Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Tottenham Hotspur's Dele Alli and Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha.
As a result, some fans had a bone to pick with the pundit:
