Gary Neville has made the big claim on Wednesday that Liverpool’s Georginio Wijnaldum is the most underrated player in the entire Premier League.
Neville, who was doing a Q&A session on Twitter, picked out the Liverpool ace when asked the question about the most underrated individual in the division.

Wijnaldum, 30, has been an ever-present in the starting XI this season, albeit his contract expires in the summer.
The £25million (BBC) central midfielder has been a massive figure for the Merseyside giants since he joined back in 2016 from Newcastle United.
He’s an all-action midfielder that is renowned for his energy, aggressiveness and physical presence in the centre of the park.
The Dutchman has been at the heart of Liverpool’s success in winning both the Premier League and Champions League in the past couple of years.
If you were looking at value for money, then Liverpool’s capture of Wijnaldum for £25million has to be right up there.
His tenacious work-rate in the midfield has been the bedrock for the team’s success, with captain Jordan Henderson and Brazilian Fabinho completing a superb trio.
It’s unclear on where Wijnaldum’s future lies, but he’s going to leave a huge hole at Liverpool if this is to be his last season.
