Keita’s turn against Palace still has Liverpool fans drooling

Keita’s turn against Palace still has Liverpool fans drooling

We are now four days on from Liverpool’s 2-0 win away at Crystal Palace and it seems that the Reds still can’t believe how good Naby Keita is. In the first half of the first Monday Night Football of the season, Naby Keita received the ball on the edge of his box with Andros Townsend bearing down on him. However, he showed he class as with his first tough he turned the winger with ease.

Naby Keita joined the club over the summer after he agreed to a pre-contract deal at Anfield in summer 2017. The talented midfielder has the all the attributes needed to excel on Merseyside and he can quite easily play anywhere in Jurgen Klopp’s midfield. So far he’s operated on the left of a midfield three in a 4-3-3 system for the Reds but it wouldn’t be too hard for the classy 23-year-old to adapt if needed.

It really does look like Klopp has signed a gem in the midfielder and his record at RB Leipzig speaks volumes about his ability and what he can bring to a side. The Guinean maestro will be looking to continue his sublime form when Liverpool host Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday in the later kick-off of the day at 17:30. The Kopites will be keen to make it three wins from three and with Keita on top form it’s likely they’ll pull off a third straight win.

The supporters are still enjoying Keita’s turn and they’ll be playing it on repeat until the midfielder can pull something more magical out of the bag.
