'I love it': Some Liverpool fans simply in awe of magic Naby Keita goal

Liverpool fans just couldn’t believe their eyes as Naby Keita scored a sensational goal against Atletico Madrid. The Guinean couldn’t have struck the ball any sweeter.

Naby Keita caught the eye on Tuesday with Liverpool’s second goal against Atletico Madrid. It was the sweetest of volleys, pushed into the back of the net from outside the box.

Trent Alexander-Arnold put a cross into the box but Atletico managed to nudge it clear. Only as far as Keita, however, who struck a perfect volley into the back of the net.

It happened in a flash as Keita made the instinctive strike seem effortless.

It’s the second time Keita has done this in 21/22, though. He scored a similar strike against Crystal Palace just a few months ago. In fact, it’s hard to remember someone scoring two sweet volleys like that in such quick succession.

After years of mixed displays, we didn’t really know Keita had it in him. But he’s demonstrating the ability for the spectacular we always hoped was there.

Unsurprisingly, fans were in awe of the strike and voiced their pleasure on Twitter.

If Keita can keep this up, he can finally become the special midfielder he appeared to be at RB Leipzig. We just haven’t seen consistent quality from the 26-year-old but it’s starting to happen.

But after a wonderful display against Watford, Keita has impressed once again. It’s a fantastic sign that he’s actually improving in his fourth season with Liverpool, which we didn’t see coming.

Jurgen Klopp took a chance with his midfield as he left Fabinho on the bench. Instead, he stuck with James Milner and Naby Keita after their performances at Vicarage Road.

It didn’t take long for both to prove that decision right, however. Even if Keita’s goal was just a little bit more special than Milner’s tap-in.
