Naby Keita’s efforts led to the Reds taking the lead. Keita, who joined from RB Leipzig this summer, made a great run to win back possession before playing a great pass into Andy Robertson who in turn teed up a perfect pass for Mohamed Salah to tap in and give Jurgen Klopp’s men the lead.

 

Among those who did notice was Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp, who on the eight minute mark said: “Naby Keita, he’s been here eight minutes but it looks like he’s been here eight years.

Here are some other tweets from Liverpool fans heralding the immediate success Keita is having in the Premier League:

With new signing Keita settling in to Klopp’s side almost immediately, Liverpool fans may finally have found a worthy successor to Steven Gerrard’s number 8 shirt.

Midfield was clearly an area of weakness last season, as Jordan Henderson formed part of a trio including Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner in the Champions League final that was thoroughly outplayed by Luka Modric and Toni Kroos on the night.

Emre Can also left for Juventus in the summer, so this fast start by Keita is a huge boost as he looks potentially like one of the signings of the summer.
