A number of Liverpool supporters are excited after James Pearce claimed Naby Keita will start Saturday’s Premier League opener at Norwich City.
The Reds make the trip to Carrow Road this weekend, looking to make a flying start to their title challenge.
After a tough season last time around, Liverpool look primed to improve, with key players back fit and both Jurgen Klopp and his players well-rested.
One player who is still waiting to fully ignite in a Liverpool shirt is Keita, who hasn’t hit the heights many expected of him when he arrived in 2018, making just 76 appearances.
The 26-year-old has enjoyed an impressive pre-season, however, and with Jordan Henderson and Thiago returning late this summer, The Athletic‘s James Pearce [via Anfield Edition on Twitter] claims the Guinean will be in the starting lineup to face Norwich.
Liverpool fans happy Keita is set for start
These Liverpool fans took to Twitter to provide their positive thoughts on the news.
“Naby season let’s go“
“Feed him the league“
“We are all about to witness an absolute masterclass of a season from this lad!! That’s right folks, I’m ready to get hurt again!“
