Player of the Weekend: Neymar

Guess who’s back?

After a summer-long flirt with Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, Neymar Jnr has returned to action at PSG. Initially booed by some of his own supporters, the Brazil star has replied in perfect style with two late goals. His latest, against PSG’s biggest title rivals, Lyon, has made him our Player of the Weekend.

Swivelling in the box in his own skilful way, he worked space for a shot at a point in the match where it seemed like an opening goal would never come. Just his third match in four months, his ability to be a match-winner even when not fully fit suggests he may be about to have a huge season for the Parisians.
