24 year old Naby Keita didn’t get the start at Liverpool that he would have hoped for. Things changed a bit for the better last night as Keita played a full game and even got a goal to boot.
It was Keita’s first goal for Liverpool in his 22 appearances. Apart from the first goal against the Saints, he has contributed with a solitary assist.
Fans saw the finish that Keita layed on the cross from Trent Alexander Arnold and immediately flocked to social media to voice their opinion. Especially since they didn’t have lots of chances so far to appreciate the Guinean midfielder.
Here are some of the tweets that sum of the fan’s sentiments after Keita’s goal against Southampton:
WHERE ARE THE NABY KEITA HATERS AT? 👂🏻 👂🏻

What a moment for Naby Keita. Finally off the mark for #LFC and it's a massive goal in the title race. Reds nowhere near their best so far but back on level terms on the South Coast.

That goal will do lots of good to Naby Keita's confidence. Dude could turn out to be a very special player for LFC.
