Has Naby Keita finally turned a corner at Liverpool?

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita may finally have announced his arrival at the club with an excellent display against Burnley.

The Guinean dynano was recalled to the starting XI by Jurgen Klopp as one of a number of changes to the side from the weekend victory over Everton.

Keita was brought in alongside Jordan Henderson and Xherdan Shaqiri in midfield and dominated proceedings, showing a fantastic touch and willingness to run.

He looked very comfortable and effortless on the ball, doing things with style.

He certainly will have given Klopp something to think about ahead of the weekend game with Bournemouth.

Rediscovered his mojo?

It really was the performance Keita needed.

 

In the first few games Keita looked as though he was going to kick on, but he didn’t end up seeing the game time he would have liked.

He was unable to maintain his form and then found it difficult to dislodged James Milner or Gini Wijnaldum.

He’s mainly been making substitute appearances for the club of late, but he took his opportunity with both hands against Burnley.

Keita really was everywhere, and showed that he perhaps does deserve an extended run in the side so he can start justifying that £52.75 million outlay (The Liverpool Echo).
