Naby Keita is going to take the Premier League by storm.
We’re quite convinced of it.
Last night, the Guinean midfielder was the best player on the pitch again as Rb Leipzig beat Zenit 2-1 in the Europa League.
He was genuinely incredible.
Not only did he rack up this assist for Timo Werner, but he completed 92% of his 81 passes, won the ball back 12 times, made five tackles and made two further key passes.
These stats are other-worldly. More rounded midfield performances haven’t been seen many times before.
We just hope Rb Leipzig get through and draw Arsenal, so we can check Keita out against English opposition for the first time.
