Naby Keita enjoyed a terrific performance against FC Porto tonight, helping us on our way to a 2-0 win at Anfield.
The Guinean opened the scoring after just a few minutes, which was great for him and us – as he played full of confidence throughout the 90.
And one moment right at the death left us purring…
Keita picked the ball up in midfield and decided to run at Porto’s tiring defence. He waltzed past three players and almost got in on goal. It would have been a glorious effort or a tremendous assist – but it’s the kind of play that made us so excited to buy him in the first place!
During the year we waited for Keita’s confirmed move to come into fruition, fans consistently watched the no.8 run through opponents like they were not there on various YouTube highlight videos!
At Rb Leipzig, he was regarded as the best midfielder in Germany – not bad when you remember Thiago plays for Bayern Munich.
This is exactly what we want to see from Naby. More of the same, lad!
What a run by Keita. pic.twitter.com/6SVUWdbPVj
