Neymar could be recondite while with the ball but everyone can easily predict perfectly that he isn’t studious to get back a lose ball, this could help Mane shine bright but get exhausted as he runs behind the ball to support Robertson.

Plaudits have made it known to the world that the Reds would produce another shortlisted name in Europe which could be Virgil van Dijk due to his resolute mindset.

He was close to being phenomenal when he faced Mbappe on-the-run during the international friendly between France and Netherlands.

But all eyes would be on the £28 million Joe Gomez as he prepares on a dank field against world-class players-precisely Neymar.
