Neymar's New Year's Eve party takes some beating as footballers see in 2019

From a lasting title challenge for Tottenham to N'Golo Kante solving Chelsea's striker crisis, here's football's biggest new year's resolutions.

Just like the rest of us, footballers across the globe celebrated New Year's Eve in their own way.

Here's a look at some of the most notable NYE posts. We think you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone, in football or not, who had a better time than Neymar.

Sorry, Pep: Possession isn't everything. Just ask Atletico and Dortmund, football's 'medieval minimalists'

The final matchday of the UEFA Champions League group stage was a very good one for teams who saw little of the ball, as several sides who had 40 percent or less possession claimed some notable victories. The most striking of those wins came at the Santiago Bernabeu, where CSKA Moscow, who had just 31 percent of the play, defeated titleholders Real Madrid 3-0.

Thomas Muller's flying kick vs. Ajax was eerily accurate recreation of Bundesliga logo

Thomas Muller's flying kick was possibly the most 'on-brand' red card ever seen in football.

They may have salvaged a dramatic 3-3 draw against Ajax in their final Champions League group match, but Bayern Munich had to muddle through the final stages of the game with 10 men after losing Thomas Muller to a straight red card.

The forward was dismissed in fairly uncontroversial circumstances when, in attempting to bring down a high ball, he inadvertently planted his studs into the head of Ajax defender Nicolas Tagliafico.

Muller was dismissed for his clumsy assault and Tagliafico eventually...
