We can imagine this will be a debate throughout the season – although in truth – it’s kind of irrelevant as both are superb and don’t necessarily need to be compared.
But with Liverpool and Manchester United such big rivals, and people on the internet loving to argue over top players, Naby Keita v Paul Pogba is definitely a thing!
Following his excellent debut, Keita received plenty of praise and a United fan went viral by suggesting Liverpool’s new no.8 is superior than United’s World Cup winning Frenchman.
When I watched pogba I thought wow when I watched keita I realised he was better than pogba

And Liverpool fans took to Twitter to agree with the comment in their droves…
For us, let’s just let Keita settle in. He has tremendous talent and is both tactically and stylistically perfect for Jurgen Klopp’s team.
The 23-year-old can create, dominate and interlink our defence and attack, too.
By the end of the campaign, we think these tweets could become fact, but let’s allow Keita space and time to shine!
Pogba will dream about Keita tonight
