Two Norwich City players have been named in the official Premier League Team of the Week for match week five, following Saturday's brilliant 3-2 victory over Manchester City.

Selected by former England captain Alan Shearer each week, Canaries players Emi Buendia and Jamal Lewis have been included, in a rather attacking 4-2-4 formation.

City head coach Daniel Farke has also been placed in charge of the Team of the Week after guiding his injury-hit squad to victory over the reigning champions.

Buendia set up two of the goals as the hosts pulled off an upset at a raucous Carrow Road and also played a key role in the build-up to Todd Cantwell's goal.

Shearer provides a short summary of each player to the Premier League's website and said of the former Argentina Under-20 international: "Did it all against the reigning champions. He got two assists and was absolutely everywhere."

Northern Ireland international left-back Lewis, who joined City at 16 years old from Luton Town, has played every minute of the league season so far.

Shearer said: "A brilliant defensive display against both Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva."

While on Farke's success the Newcastle legend added: "Not afraid to take the game to the champions. His bravery was fully rewarded.£

Former Norwich number one Angus Gunn is named in goal following Southampton's 1-0 win at Sheffield United as well.

PL MW5 Team of the Week: Gunn (Southampton); Aurier (Tottenham), Maguire (Man Utd), Alderweireld (Tottenham), LEWIS (NORWICH); Hojbjerg (Southampton), BUENDIA (NORWICH); Son (Tottenham), Abraham (Chelsea), Firmino (Liverpool), Mane (Liverpool)
