Neymar Struggling With the Language Barrier

Considering Celtic's state in the wake of Tuesday's 5-0 thrashing in the opening round of Champions League Group B fixtures, Bruno Genesio's Lyon are arguably the strongest side PSG have faced so far this season - certainly with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe both in the squad.

The Arsenal manager heaped praise on the French teenager, who joined the Paris giants from Monaco in the transfer window, linking up with Brazilian superstar Neymar to form a frightening forward line.

"I'm very happy, it was a very good match, it was very important to win and playing with great players is always a pleasure", said Neymar after his PSG Champions League debut.

Celtic have earned the right to be a Champions League club again these days - the problem they have is that the competition's big boys have already left them miles behind before they even take to the pitch.

The Brazilian defender told reporters: "It's incredible to see the connection between Neymar and Mbappe".

"We have to continue to be strong and improve". This was already the case with Saint-Etienne in the last match. If we can keep showing progress, the whole team will benefit.

It would be hard for any of the players to disagree because they were caught chasing the ball and it was rabbit in the headlights stuff during that first half.

It doesn't seem as if Cavani will be quite so accommodating. However, with Nabil Fekir, Memphis Depay, Mariano Diaz and Bertrand Traore, this young team still possess the firepower to hurt PSG.

Defensive combinations of Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Dani Alves, Layvin Kurzawa, Thomas Meunier, Presnel Kimpembe and Yuri Berchiche have looked vulnerable - well, complacent - against Toulouse and Metz, so if the back four Emery picks on Sunday is not as tight as it should be, Neymar, Mbappe and Cavani will be relied upon to outscore Lyon.

The speed of change at the top level has been remarkable, as money has really taken over and widened the gap between the haves and the have nots on that stage.
