Neymar scored another late winner as French champions Paris St-Germain edged past Lyon to move three points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

The Brazil forward skilfully swivelled in the box and fired into the bottom corner with three minutes remaining to break the hosts’ resistance.

He had been booed by his own fans before scoring a 92nd-minute winner against Strasbourg last weekend.

He missed PSG’s first five games as he tried to force a return to Barcelona.

But, back in the PSG team after missing their 3-0 Champions League win over Real Madrid due to a three-match European suspension, the 27-year-old continued to deliver on the pitch.

Lyon had goalkeeper Anthony Lopes to thank as they remained in the contest, with the Portuguese producing outstanding saves from Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Neymar as PSG recorded 21 shots at goal.

However, Lopes was left helpless as Neymar – swarmed by defenders – produced a moment of quality as his side made it five successive victories and as many clean sheets since a surprise defeat by Rennes in August.
