Sunday was a great day for Premier League football.

A lot had been said in the build up to 'derby day', and all three games did not disappoint.

Chelsea and Fulham were first up in the west London derby, with Maurizio Sarri's side emerging 2-0 victors after goals from Pedro and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

The north London derby was next up, with Arsenal overcoming Tottenham 4-2 in a pulsating clash.

And Liverpool then secured a 1-0 victory over Everton in the Merseyside derby after Divock Origi scored a dramatic winner in the sixth minute of stoppage time.

Gary Neville was working for Sky Sports to cover all the games and he would have not been let down by what he saw.

The Manchester United legend did a short Q&A before the games, with the most interesting question being who he thought was the most underrated player in the Premier League.

His answer? None other than Georginio Wijnaldum.

The Dutch midfielder has certainly gone under the radar during his time at Liverpool.

Gary Neville is clearly a big fan of Wijnaldum

Despite Jurgen Klopp adding Fabinho and Naby Keita in the summer, the Dutchman has firmly established himself as a regular in a very good Liverpool side.

But, despite turning in a number of impressive displays this season, a number of Liverpool fans remain unconvinced.

While he's a tidy player in midfield, Wijnaldum perhaps doesn't get as many goals as he should do in this side.

Gary Neville has called Georgino Wijnaldum the most underrated player in the Premier League

He's scored just nine times in 110 appearances since making the £25 million move to Liverpool in 2016.

And, it's fair to say that the majority of Liverpool fans don't agree with Neville's assessment of the midfielder.

Some believe he's too inconsistent to be considered underrated.

And others think that he's just not very good at all.

What do you think? Is Wijnaldum the most underrated player in the Premier League? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
