Premier League legend Alan Shearer has heaped praise on Leeds United star Stuart Dallas, following his weekend heroics.
The 29-year-old produced a memorable performance on Saturday afternoon, proving to be the hero against soon-to-be-champions Manchester City.
Dallas scored both of his side’s goals, including the stoppage time winner, and his all-round display was typically influential, as has been the case throughout this season.
Shearer waxes lyrical over Dallas
Someone who was clearly impressed with what he saw was Shearer, who named Dallas in his Premier League Team of the Week.
Writing about the versatile Northern Irishman, the ex-England and Newcastle United star outlined his impact at the Etihad last weekend:
“Wow. Outstanding. After helping to defend with 10 men for so long, he somehow still had the energy to run through and score the winner.”
Transfer Tavern take
It’s nice to see that Dallas finally seems to be receiving more mainstream praise, with Leeds fans well aware of his quality for some time now.
He was once described as ‘selfless’ by former Whites striker Jermaine Beckford, which perfectly sums up his unsung nature and team ethic.
As the campaign nears its conclusion, Dallas is a strong contender to win Leeds’ Player of the Year award, especially given his current form, with the midfielder scoring seven goals and registering two assists in the league.
