Gary Neville has named what he believes to be the five players currently the best in the Premier League – and there is one surprise emission in-particular.

The former Manchester United and England defender held a Q&A on Thursday with his four million Twitter followers.

A user by the name of @Aviet19 asked Neville who he believes are the top five players in the Premier League at the moment.

The 43-year-old surprisingly chose to leave out PFA Player of the Year winner Mo Salah, and also snubbed Man City star David Silva.

Neville named players from five different clubs in his list, which included Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, Spurs star Harry Kane, Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk, Man City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne and Manchester United keeper David de Gea.

The Sky Sports pundit also tipped Juventus to win the Champions League this season, and revealed that the toughest defender he ever faced was Paolo Maldini.

In addition, Neville ranked Liverpool’s front three slightly ahead of Manchester City’s front three, and that from the current market he would sign Van Dijk or Sergio Ramos for United.
