Liverpool: Many fans want Naby Keita to start against Genk

Plenty of Liverpool fans have been calling for Naby Keita to be included in the Reds’ midfield for their Champions League clash away to Genk on Wednesday night.

The Redmen TV asked Twitter followers for their preferred midfield line-up for the game in Belgium, with the Guinean’s name featuring in many of the responses. [via @TheRedmenTV]

Keita’s only start so far this season came against MK Dons in the Carabao Cup last month, while his eight-minute appearance as a substitute against Manchester United at the weekend was his first in the Premier League this term. [via TransferMarkt]

Despite the brevity of his appearance at Old Trafford, he still managed to complete 22 passes on Sunday, with an 84.6% success rate during his time on the field. [via WhoScored]

The 24-year-old missed several weeks of the campaign through a muscle injury that he incurred in the warm-up of the UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea two months ago and has been limited to 94 minutes of game time in all competitions so far in 2019/20.
