‘What I thought Keita was…’ LFC fans love Wijnaldum’s new role

Gini Wijnaldum was great against Napoli on Saturday, and he’s shining at Anfield this evening v Torino as well!

Not only did the Dutchman score a lovely goal following an assist from Roberto Firmino, but he produced an all-action first 45 minutes – which featured forward passes, forward runs and intelligent pressing.

Gini is often criticised for not contributing enough and drifting through games, but he’s actually playing further ahead of Naby Keita tonight – with the Guinean looking quite rusty.

As a result, Liverpool fans have compared the two, although it must be said this isn’t a criticism of the latter but a compliment of the former Newcastle man.

We reckon Wijnaldum will play against West Ham on Sunday, with Fabinho holding the midfield and Keita on the other side.

Jordan Henderson may be fit enough to play from the outset one week later when we take on Crystal Palace.
