Naby Keita has started life at Liverpool fantastically, winning every game he’s featured in!
There’s been some moments of pure brilliance, such as the turn and pass to Mo Salah v Crystal Palace or the jinking run that led to the Egyptian’s goal v West Ham on Opening Day.
But there’s a feeling that he’s still not reached his best level, taken out from the starting XI v Leicester City last time out.
It was, however, to our detriment, and we lost drive and creativity centrally.
Keita has stated his goal this term is to simply help the team, but will always strive for and more individually as his career progresses.
“First and foremost, I should say that I’m very much a team player and I always think about the team first,” he told the official website.
“The Premier League is different to other leagues where I have played and everybody knows it is very tough, but I will do my best to beat my own personal records.
“I’m the kind of person who thinks that if I score eight goals in one season my objective must be to score nine goals in the following season. That’s the kind of mentality I have.”
We’ve no doubt that Keita will eventually take the Premier League by storm.
He’s simply too talented not to.
Once Fabinho’s integrated himself into the team we reckon his job will be much easier. The Brazilian has famous defensive qualities that will allow Keita a free role in which he bombs on and helps our front-three.
