Saturday saw a routine victory for Liverpool. The Reds cruised to victory on the South Coast as they pasted Bournemouth 3-0 at Dean Court. Goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita and Mo Salah made it a walk in the park for Jürgen Klopp’s men. Liverpool fans were overjoyed by Naby Keita against Bournemouth – the Guinean was awarded the club’s MOTM award.

Since his arrival in 2018 for around £52m, the Guinean midfielder has struggled for a run of games in the side. His fitness has been the main obstacle as he has been sidelined with injury for much of his Liverpool career.

We are also all aware of just how zealous Jürgen Klopp can be when it comes to not playing a new signing regularly until he feels they are up to speed with the team’s style of play.

It appears that the former RB Leipzig man is finally up to scratch, Naby Keita scored and assisted against Bournemouth and looked threatening throughout the game.

This Kopite was enamoured with the midfielder’s MOTM performance.

One fan was excited to finally see Naby link up with the Egyptian King, Mo Salah.

A Liverpool fan account outlined the numbers that added up for one incredibly impressive performance.


This Red thought that Naby Keita earned that coveted number eight shirt against Bournemouth.

One Twitter user insisted that if he keeps performing to the same standard and he keeps himself fit, he could be priceless for the Reds.

This statistician referred to Naby Keita against Bournemouth as “the complete midfield performance”.

And of course, one fan was asking where all the Keita critics had disappeared to.
