Naby Keita was awesome in the second-half v West Ham, sublime at home in the win over Bournemouth and put in a quality outing at Anfield in the first 45 v Bayern Munich tonight…
The Guinean showed exemplary work-rate, but also some excellent dribbling in midfield – happy to take the ball in tight areas and recycle it – or beat a man with his incredibly quick feet.
His positive play almost led to a goal, when his run and shot through the centre ended up at the feet of Sadio Mane, who should have bagged.
Keita has been criticised for lacking confidence this season, but early on he actually tried to score a bicycle kick from outside the area – which perhaps shows he’s now found it!
We’re just so glad Naby has found his feet and is starting to prove his worth in the run up to the end of the season. He’s going to play a massive part in our chances of securing the Premier League or doing well in Europe this term.
Quality first half by Naby Keita

Henderson our best player by far. He’s been brilliant. Naby Keita growing in confidence with every game. Unlucky not to lead here, had big chances.
