Liverpool fans have reacted furiously on social media to Neymar's comments about their chances in the Premier League this season.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward believed that the Reds would not manage to make the top four this season, believing that Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham would be the teams finishing at the top of the Premier League.
Speaking with the Express, he said: “Liverpool are not good enough. They will not finish in the top four this season. Manchester City will win the title, Man United second, Chelsea third and Tottenham fourth.”
