Naby Keita injury update
Liverpool have been without Naby Keita for some weeks now.
The Guinean midfielder has been missing since starring in the 7-0 win over Crystal Palace in mid December.
Speaking at a pre-match press conference, Jürgen Klopp offered a Naby Keita injury update.
The boss said that the £48m man will be back soon but won’t feature against Aston Villa.
What RTK has to say
This Keita injury update is encouraging.
The news hints that he could be available to face Man United next week.
The Reds have been without his industriousness and creativity in midfield, on his day he can be a game changer.
Hopefully he’s back in time for the big game.
