The Ligue 1 team of the week was recently released. It features players like Lucas Paqueta, Matteo Guendouzi, William Saliba and Neymar.
Some people are arguing online about the fact that Neymar played only one match and scored in it, thus he deserves to be in the list, but I bet to differ. Lucas Paqueta, William Saliba and Matteo Guendouzi have all played more than one match for their team in the past week and as such, they deserve to be featured on the team of the week.
Neymar only played the last match of the week, while Kylian Mbappe played all of PSG matches and put in some useful contributions for the team too.
To be sincere, Mbappe has done most of the heavy lifting for PSG even though he has played alongside Lionel Messi, Angel di Maria and Neymar this month. In my opinion, Neymar should have been replaced with Mbappe as he is the clear favorite to enter the team of the week and not Neymar.
