‘Never bench him for Henderson again’ – Liverpool fans on Naby Keita

Naby Keita impressed against Burnley last night.

Jurgen Klopp rotated his starting line-up last night to take on Burnley at Turf Moor and they emerged victorious at the end.

With the scores level at half-time and then Jack Cork putting Burnley ahead, Klopp’s decision to rest a number of players looked like it was backfiring.

But goals from James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri ensured Liverpool took all three points back to Merseyside.

The 23-year-old has had a mixed start to life at Anfield and he has struggled to assert himself as a regular starter just yet.

The likes of Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and Milner have all enjoyed more playing time than Keita so far.

But after his eye-catching performance against the Clarets, where he was unlucky not to get on the score sheet, maybe the Guinea international is set for a bigger role.

Klopp would have been impressed with Keita, who controlled the midfield with his passing, energy and ball-carrying skills.

Below are tweets from Liverpool fans sharing their thoughts on Keita’s impressive midfield display.
