Journalist says £52million gem will start against Fulham on Sunday

Naby Keita

Dominic King reports that Naby Keita will return to Liverpool’s starting lineup to face Fulham on the weekend, with the Guinean able to inject increased levels of creativity into the side.

The Guinean suffered a hamstring injury during the last international break and after he returned to training late last week, he is fit and ready to come back into Liverpool’s starting lineup once more.

After completing his £52million move from RB Leipzig in the summer, Keita started the first game of the season at home against West Ham and was heavily involved in most of the Reds’ attacks.

After a dismal Champions League defeat in Serbia on Tuesday, Jurgen Klopp will be looking for a major response from his players to ensure further points aren’t dropped after drawing with Arsenal last week.

Writing for the Daily Mail, Dominic King claims that with the 23-year-old, “fit again”, the “clash with bottom-of-the-table Fulham should see Keita restored to the starting line-up.”

Keita’s presence in the lineup perhaps coupled with another league start for Fabinho would see Liverpool arrive at Craven Cottage with renewed vigour and more importantly, more creativity in the middle of the park.

Since his move from the Bundesliga, injuries and a lack of form have hampered Keita and hopefully we will soon see the very best of him.
