Neymar has previously played against England, but could he one day ply his trade IN England?

While Chelsea maintained their 10-point lead at the top of the Premier League, most of the more interesting stories of the weekend happened in the battle for fourth and the fight to beat the drop.

"The Premier League is a championship that amazes me". Neymar admitted that he is amazed by the Premier League and also confessed his love for the playing style and the teams involved.

One aspect of the Premier League that Neymar enjoys is the unpredictable nature of the league, "nobody knows who is going to win and who wil be champion as it's always unknown".

Things are getting a little congested in the relatively safe haven of lower-to-mid-table, what with both Leicester and Crystal Palace poking their way towards a bigger crowd of clubs who've barely moved all season.

'And then you have high-level coaches like [Jose] Mourinho and [Pep] Guardiola. These are coaches any player would like to play for.

While La Liga is usually won by either Barcelona or Real Madrid, the Premier League campaign begins with five or six sides teams with a chance of glory. "They had a great season past year, they were Prem champions and therefore we need to respect them if we draw them in the Champions League".

"Leicester are very good". Neymar is arguably the hottest property in world football with the likes of Messi and Ronaldo entering the twilight of their career.
