Micky Hazard jokes about Neymar copying his skills on Twitter

Neymar

The Tottenham icon took to social media in light-hearted mood on New Year's Day.

Micky Hazard took to Twitter on New Year's Day to joke that Barcelona superstar Neymar has copied his old Tottenham Hotspur tricks.

Indeed, Hazard was discussing a superb touch from the Brazilian that saw him take the ball down effortlessly from the air.

And the Tottenham icon kidded that Neymar has stolen that skill from his playing days!

The Barcelona forward has been in phenomenal form this season and is on the shortlist for the Ballon d'Or award.

Meanwhile, Tottenham face Everton on Sunday afternoon and go into the Premier League clash as firm favourites.

Spurs are fourth in the league table, while the Toffees are 11th and have only won three of their last 10 games.

Mauricio Pochettino's men could make it four wins in a row with victory over Roberto Martinez's side and failure to do so would likely bring disappointment - such is the momentum being built at White Hart Lane.

A draw may do, as Tottenham are the away team, but the north London side will have to manage without the trickery of Hazard... or Neymar for that matter!
