The Dutch international did manage an impressive 11 goals on his debut season on Tyneside, with his £14m arrival from PSV meaning he was the most expensive players we’ve signed since Michael Owen, however many criticised him from ‘disappearing’ in away games during our 2015/16 relegation season.
That said, he still earned a big money move to Liverpool and, despite a mixed start to life on Merseyside, he’s now really starting to cement his place in Jurgen Klopp’s side – and it’s fair to say his all round game has come on leaps and bounds.
He’s now an all action midfielder opposed to a goalscoring number 10, with Neville now believing he is the ‘most underrated’ player in the league – something a few Newcastle fans may be shocked to hear.
NEVILLE: Gini Wijnaldum

Whilst this is Gary going a bit overboard for me, Wijnaldum has tended to impress just about every time I watch Liverpool these days, with him looking far more of a rounded midfielder both on and off the ball.
Do you agree with Neville here?
