A hot topic in the Liverpool camp at the moment is the current poor form and injury frequency of Naby Keïta. Jurgen Klopp has spoken out about the Guinean and explained he is sympathetic towards his recent situation, however sections of the media have said that the manager simply can’t wait forever on him to perform (via James Pearce).
Keïta has featured in just nine Premier League matches this season and has scored three goals across all competitions (via Transfermarkt). His 2019/20 campaign has been plagued with injuries – Keïta has missed a total of 14 matches in all competitions through injuries (also Transfermarkt).
The 24-year-old didn’t feature against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, but Pearce has previously suggested he is not still carrying an injury.
Many fans are tired of Keïta’s inconsistency, with his full potential still yet to be fully unleashed. Others are adamant that Klopp needs to give him another chance.
Just sell him. We can't wait for him untill he deliver.
He got his chances.

What I was telling you about Naby the other day.
Klopp wants him to be a direct replacement for Coutinho, but he can’t even stay fit to save his life.
I think Klopp has tried, and it is very ok to find a new replacement.

Agreed… Keita needs to show us what he has to offer

He hasn’t even had a pre season. Was floored by the national team and Leipzig. Hopefully stays fit next season
