Liverpool fans have criticised the performance of midfielder Naby Keita after their 2-1 victory at Anfield in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Has Naby Keita been a flop?
The Guinea international was on the pitch for 74 minutes before being substituted for Andrew Robertson as the Reds climbed to the top of Group E as Napoli could only draw 1-1 against RB Salzburg.
Despite the criticism that he has received, his statistics from the game suggest that he had a good outing for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The 24-year-old had five (per WhoScored) shots on goal during the game and was unlucky not to get himself on the scoresheet. However, a few of his shots were bad connections with the ball and off-target.
Despite this, some supporters were not convinced and made their feelings clear on social media.
Here are some of the frustrated comments from Liverpool fans:
Keita is awful. Way too raw for the premier league

Keita is a flop. Better accept it now

Not really. Not great tracking back , and looks sluggish. Doesn’t live up to the hype imo . Needs games , probably stating the obvious.

Ox, mo and Alisson back on form. Mo saving his goals for City. Alisson needed those saves mentally.
Gomez, keita remain distinctly average and miles off their expected levels. They are more likely to be playing villa than being in qatar
