'Oh my': Some Liverpool fans blown away by what Naby Keita did yesterday during 1-0 win
Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after footage emerged of Naby Keita making opponents look silly in the 1-0 win over Mainz 05 yesterday.
What’s the story?
Well, the £52.75m man got some minutes in the tank yesterday as Liverpool defeated the German side, thanks to a late own goal from Luca Kilian.
In the 35th minute, Keita can be seen deceiving one opponent with a clever first touch, which pops the ball into space.
Then, he wriggles through a gap, before delicately sliding the ball between another Mainz 05 player’s legs.
Sadly, Keita’s mesmeric run ends there, as he’s then dragged to the ground.
It may only have been a pre-season friendly, but it’s a reminder of just how much talent the Guinea international has in his locker.
Please Liverpool, keep Naby Keita fit
The 26-year-old is such a brilliant player, who could really take Liverpool’s midfield up a gear if he managed to stay away from the treatment room.
Whenever Keita looks like he’s finding some form in a Liverpool shirt, he seems to pick up a knock which hinders his progress.
It’s such a shame. In fact, the Anfield faithful haven’t actually seen the best of him yet, in our view, despite this now being his third year on Merseyside.
A midfield trio of Keita, Thiago and Fabinho is mouthwatering, as is one also involving Jordan Henderson.
Whether Keita requires a change of fitness regime, or another type of amendment, Liverpool have to ensure he remains fit.
For now, let’s see what the Liverpool fans on Twitter have been saying about his silky nutmeg…
