There's only one Manuel Neuer. The Bayern Munich goalkeeper has made the role of sweeper keeper his own so much so that 'sweeper keeper' is a bit outdated and 'thinks he's Neuer' is now the technical term. We're guilty of it ourselves. So when Kasper Schmeichel was up to this tonight against Liverpool:

It resulted in this. (The fact that Schmeichel was inside Liverpool's half when Leicester were 3-1 down says a lot about how he's not like Neuer [or perhaps it says something about how he views Liverpool's defence]).
