Liverpool secured a 3-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion as the Reds continued on their quest for a record points total.
The newly-crowned champions were two goals to the good inside 10 minutes with Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson making their mark.
Leandro Trossard pulled one back for the Seagulls just before the interval, but Salah’s second of the night ensured three more points.
Liverpool have been a joy to watch this season and although their last few performances haven’t been vintage, they are worthy champions.
For boss Jurgen Klopp, the challenge will be to set the record points total, although he will also want to learn something about his squad.
The German will be keen to establish the professionalism of his players and discover who he can rely on next season.
One player who shone last night was midfielder Naby Keita, who grabbed another opportunity in the team with aplomb.
Despite those sums, he has failed to hold down a regular spot in Klopp’s team and some supporters were wondering what the future might hold.
An injury struck season has seen him start just seven league games during 2019/20 but on last night’s showing the future is bright.
Following his excellent display, we looked at a selection of tweets lauding the midfield maestro.
Naby Keita is on one tonight.

Naby Keita has been sublime since the restart like praying he’ll actually be fully fit from now on

Nothing surprising or revelatory about Naby Keita's performance. He has been mostly top notch whenever he has played this season.

#NabyKeita was the most refreshing player in the game.last night! On his day, he can give us the creativity combined with agressive pressing that we need in midfield. Imagine the 3 of Keita, Fabi & Gini in mid at peak form!! Dayum! ?????#BHALIV #LFC #YNWA
