Naby Keita for Jordan Henderson is the only change that Jurgen Klopp has made for the Champions League game against Napoli – and Reds fans are loving it.
The captain will be bitterly disappointed to miss out on the XI, but it does mean that he is almost certain to start at the weekend against Manchester City in the Premier League.

Many Reds fans expressed their delight at the Guinean coming into the side, though, with many feeling that he could be ideally suited to this kind of encounter.
These tweets sum up the mood now the LFC team sheet has been confirmed.
Looking forward to seeing Keita tonight. Looked very bright at the weekend but knocked off a bit tactically vs Chelsea in the cup.

Figured we'd get Keïta in midfield. Perhaps the only surprise is, given how many minutes they've played, it wasn't for one of Milner or Gini. Rest as expected. Klopp said he wouldn't pick with an eye to City.

Keita starts tonight. Expecting a top performance from him especially the way he played off the bench v Chelsea. Anyway, HUGE game for us in a tough place to go to. UP THE FUCKING REDMEN🔴
