He was brilliant. But i can see why Klopp still not play him regularly. He loss possession due to his poor awareness of his surrounding few times in this game. But sure he will improve if he plays regularly.

Keita was superb today. Klopp should be picking him ahead of the passenger duo of Henderson/Gini. #BOULIV
