Liverpool fans ridicule Neymar for predicting Reds will miss out on top four

Liverpool were tipped as contenders for the Premier League title at the start of the season, and their four wins from four matches have maintained that prediction.

However, one of the biggest names in the game believes that Jurgen Klopp’s side will struggle to even make the top four of the Premier League.

While speaking to The Express, Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar decided to leave the Reds out while listing who will finish in the top echelons of England’s elite division.

The Brazil international, who has scored 32 goals for the French outfit, predicted that Manchester City will retain their title, with Manchester United finishing second, despite their poor start to the campaign.

Jose Mourinho’s side have lost two and won two since the 2018-19 season kicked off.

Neymar also told The Express that he expects Chelsea to secure third and Tottenham Hotspur to take the fourth spot, leaving Liverpool out altogether.

His predictions are likely to make the Reds’ Champions League group-stage match against PSG at Anfield that much more interesting.

On Reddit, some fans hit back at Neymar, with a handful poking fun at the attacker’s diving antics.
